Simulates a controlable buggy
Computer science software for k12 and ks3 computing curriculum..
VR Buggy simulates the behaviour of a motorised 3D floor roaming buggy. Control of the on-screen virtual reality buggy is achieved directly by clicking on icons or with the built in programming language. This program is useful for schools coding software requirements.
Programs are able to move the buggy forwards, backwards left and right as each of the buggies two motors can be programmatically controlled.This powerful simulation enables the principals of controlling a floor-roaming buggy to be realised without the expense of purchasing any external hardware. Simple commands Primitive objects are placed onto the base, these objects can be moved around. The buggy will stop working when it collides with an object. This enables mazes to be designed.
Level 1 allows forward, back, right and left options. Turning angles are set to 90 degrees.
Level 2 enables complete control of the buggy. A program is written with simple primitive commands such as FORWARD 10, RIGHT 45.
Feedback can be incorporated into programs using the IF command.
The coding language includes simple command primitives which can be included in loops.
Programs may be broken down into sub programs to introduce procedures.
Includes an online user guide with programming instructions and a description of each of the commands.
