Post Problems!!! Plz help us T.T
Hi dear,
This is middle school student starting RobotC programming.
We started our project that robot scans 2 circles and compare which
on is bigger.
Don't know how to start. We made robot already.
Please help and I will appreciate with all my heart.
Thanks!!

Well, let's see, how can you tell if a circle is bigger? That will tell you the specific problem you are trying to solve with a robot.
Then, you can figure out how your robot has to drive to let you do that, and what you need to do with the sensors.

So, for instance a circle is bigger when the circumference or the diameter is bigger. Which one do you think is easier to measure? And then how do you think you can make your robot measure it?

Also, what kind of circles are they? Are they just outlines or are they solid, because that will change what you need to do with the sensors? And also, does your robot have a light sensor on it?
