Learn Robotics in Unreal Engine
Our team has created five uniquely engaging Hour of Code activities that teach coding concepts with Unreal Engine. Each activity has a lesson plan, step-by-step student guide, and walkthrough video. The activities and included project files are designed to be done in order from beginning to end as you increase your knowledge and experience with virtual robotics.
4. COLLISION AVOIDANCE ROBOT
In this activity, students will learn how to use a distance sensor to detect objects in the path of their robot. The activity will use our line following robot, but it will upgrade it to stop if an object gets in its path. Complete the challenge activity by navigating a path while avoiding obstacles that cross your path.
In this lesson students will learn how to map their motors to keyboard key presses, making a virtual remote control from their keyboard input. This will enable them to drive and control the robot’s movement from their keyboard. Complete the final activity by building, coding, and controlling a goal scoring robot!
