This is a 10 out 10 tutorial for the switch engine mission from the FIRST LEGO League 2021 Cargo Connect competition. We used our LEGO Education SPIKE Prime robot, to accomplish the mission.

Let's start. First run, move forward, activate the attachment, and we switch the engine. That's it. A couple of interesting things for this robot and for the behavior of the robot. First, as we discussed in the previous tutorial, where we discussed the program, there is the first part of the program where we initialize, and the second part where we press the left button in order to start the robot. So check out the previous tutorial to see it. Apart from this, as long as we consistently and reliably and position the robot next to the attachment, the accomplishment of the mission is quite easy. And we have this course for language like prime programming for competition, where you can check for different principles of how we accomplish the challenge to position the robot correctly on the field. Precisely, reliably, consistently. Apart from this, the attachment quite a simple attachment. It's an active attachment with gears that change the orientation of the movement and they transfer power from the motor to this purple LEGO beam at the end. Couple of ways in which this mission could be accomplished. We decided for this simple way. It's straightforward and it works. The whole attachment allows for some error and it's quite reliable. Quite reliable. Hope this is helpful. See you in the next tutorial.
