Dear Mrs. de la Rosa-Pohl:
We are planning to create a LEGO NXT autonomous robot that will be able to perform actions
decided by our group. Our goal is to have our robot ready to battle other “sumobots” based on
our predetermined actions by November 20th.
Our group consists of Juston Thomson, Becky Riedesel, and me, Rick Petersen. So far on this
project, we have not designated what each person’s role is. We are currently trying to determine
our strengths and what part of the design we would like to work on.
Since we have received our project, we have looked over the robot parts and we have
experimented with the sound, touch and ultrasonic sensors.
Any questions or comments regarding our project, please feel free to contact me at the above
address. Thank you again for giving us the opportunity to work on this project.
