STUP AND KARACK – VUK’S FIRST HUNT

Karack and Stup

Programming level 1

Karack and Stup

P1

How to build

Karack and Stup "A" version

  • Building figures

Karack and Stup "B" version

  • Stup and Karack on separate robots, equipped with 2 DC motors each
  • Both robots move automatically when switched on: Karack forwards, Stup backwards

Without robotics

With robotic

Puppet show with the foxes

P2

How to build

Puppet show with the foxes

  • Two robots with 2 DC motors, 2 Touch sensors and 1 Buzzer each
  • Stup and Karack figures mounted on the robots
  • Both robots start at the press of one Touch sensor (Stup backwards, Karack forwards), stops at the press of the other, while the Buzzer is playing
  • Each have 2 green LED’s in their eyes, continuously lit

Building and coordinated movement of figures

P3

How to build

Building and coordinated movement of figures

  • Karack keeps attacking Stup and forces him to retreat
  • Starts at the press of a Touch Sensor – moves forward (slowly)
  • Touch Sensor built into the front stops him on impact (for a few seconds), then he continues forward
  • 2 LEDs (green) continuously lit – eyes
  • Stup moves back when Karack attacks
  • Touch Sensor – program start
  • Press of front-mounted Touch Sensor moves him back (quickly) (for a few seconds), then he stops
  • 2 LEDs (green) continuously lit – eyes

Foxes reacting to approach

P4

How to build

Foxes reacting to approach

  • Robot design similar to P3, but with IR Photoreflector in front instead of Touch sensor, Stup’s tail attached to servo motor
  • Karack moves forward at random intervals, when IR Photoreflector detects Stup, he stops, eye lights up. When Sut moves away, he waits for a random duration, then his eye goes out and he starts moving forward
  • Stup stands still, tail pointed upward. When he senses Karack, he lowers his tail, his eye lights up, moves backwards for a random amount of time, then he stops, his eye goes out, and he raises his tail
