Coding can play as an important skill to know because there might be different situations in which coding may come into play. For example if you need to get rid of a computer virus and you need to decode a code, that's where coding can and probably will come into play. Or for instance you find yourself entering the army as a computer programmer, and you need to send a secret coded message to a base somewhere, coding will also come into play in that type of situation. Although you may not decided to become a programmer in the future as a career. But having the skills of coding and background understanding of it can just be a good skill to know. So our first task was to complete Challenge #1 which a test to see if we could safely get our Altino car around the figure 8 course. But the only was to get the car to go, turn and stop, was by using coding and using the commands.
"STEERING" well, is basically which directions you want your wheels to go. "GO" was a command used to make the Altino car go a certain speed. And "DELAY" was a command used to make the car stop running the coded loop. Otherwise the car would continuously running the loop. I felt like working the process of trial and error really helped me get a better understanding of what it takes to be good at coding. Every time we made a mistake we would go back and re-look what the code was and where the error is and fix it.
Describe the new commands that were required to successfully complete Challenge #2 (While Loop, Array, Display Line, Sound). Would you ever trust an autonomous vehicle to give you a ride... please explain your answer. Do you think autonomous vehicles will be used in the future to carry out complex tasks like an ambulance responding to accidents... why or why not?
For this 2nd Challenge I was absent but, the goal for this Challenge, we were to complete an atonomous challenge was to make our car be an ambulance and make it go
