This project is for Piscis - a LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Fish robot. The project includes two programs for two different feeding spots for the fish. The first one is straight across the reef in which Piscis lives, and the second one is to the side, after a 90 degree turn. In those programs the fish robot has to wait a few times in order to be sure no sharks are around him. It detects feeding spots using a touch sensor. The interesting part is how it returns, without knowledge how far it has gone. The program uses motor rotation sensor in order to return to the reef in both cases.

This program is for Antares - a simple LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Scorpion robot. The program uses rotation sensor to detect if the scorpion has caught anything using its claws. We predict how many degrees the claw has to move to close fully and if it hasn't done that many, it has caught something.

This project is for Lintu - a LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Kiwi bird robot. The project includes three programs, the first is the main program for the robot. It goes forward until it sees a hand next to its beak, then closes it and returns to the starting point, its nest. The second program is an upgrade: the robot not only closes its beak, but also check if there is "food" in it. Both the checking for food and the returning to starting position are made using the motor rotation sensor.
The last program is a fun one. It makes the robot bite!

This MyBlock is made in substitution for a regular wait-gyro-rate block. It is made with a filter so that big differences in sensor data don't show up as much. It also uses only absolute values of the data so negative or positive angle on the gyro sensor does not matter. The MyBlock ends, when the rate is below a certain value, which is inputed by a parameter.
By default the Gyro sensor is connected on port 2 but if your robot is different, make sure to change the blocks to suit it.

This is a program for the Sebastian crab robot. It makes the robot walk, but also keeps track of where its legs are. It makes those who overrun the others to stop and wait for them.

With this program you can drive the Truckie or every robot with the same port settings. It is easy to drive with that set up because you use the left stick to control the speed and the right stick to steer. The benefit according to Truckie Hard To Drive VEX IQ Program for Modkit is that this set up uses both sticks to control the movement. Probably you will use this stick setting in the VEX competition and practicing this type of setting will be very useful for your driving skills to grow. Ones you have master this driving technic you will be more relaxed while you are on the competition.
After you feel satisfied with your driving skills and you have accomplished all the goals you can continue with the competition driving program settings.
This program is mainly for controlling Truckie VEX IQ robot.

These programs are ment to work with the watchtower security bot.
"ShowRate" shows the gyro rate on the display of the robot.
"SoundProgram" plays different sounds depending on the vibration the gyro scenes.
"GreedTheGuard" plays sounds depending on the vibration for 15 seconds, or until the ultrasonic sensor scenes something near it.
"Optimised" is the same program as "GreedTheGuard", but it uses the time condition in the loop.

A program, that uses the Radarfrod robot to detect the speed of a moving vehicle. It has the following MyBlocks:
- WaitForTheArm: It's basically a wait block, that waits for the Up variable in the CheckMySpeed program to become false.
- DetectSpeed: Detects the speed of a moving object and displays it on the screen. This continues, until the Up variable in CheckMySpeed program to become true. This MyBlock also rings a siren if the speed of the object is more than the set one. The speed we use is in centimeters per second.
- LiftArm: Lifts Radarfords arm for the set amount of seconds.
NOTE: The program contains my blocks, that will appear broken if you use any version before 1.3.0 of the EV3 Mindstorms Software
