Post threshold values
What are the threshold values for the curriculum companion virtual world? I've looked in the sample programs and can't find it.

Post Re: threshold values
Here you go. This is the Line Track for Distance sample program. The threshold is 45

#pragma config(Sensor, S1,     touchSensor,              sensorTouch)
#pragma config(Sensor, S2,     compassSensor,            sensorVirtualCompass)
#pragma config(Sensor, S3,     lightSensor,              sensorLightActive)
#pragma config(Sensor, S4,     sonarSensor,              sensorSONAR)
#pragma config(Motor,  motorA,          gripperMotor,       tmotorNormal, PIDControl, encoder)
#pragma config(Motor,  motorB,          rightMotor,         tmotorNormal, PIDControl, encoder)
#pragma config(Motor,  motorC,          leftMotor,          tmotorNormal, PIDControl, encoder)

Line Track for Distance
This program uses 1 NXT Line Follower Sensor to track a black line on a light(er) surface
for 5 rotations of the encoders. There is a two second pause at the beginning of the program.

The threshold variable defined in this program may need to be changed for the line/surface your
robot is tracking and the lighting conditions.

Robot Model(s): NXT REMBOT

[I/O Port]          [Name]              [Type]                [Description]
Motor Port 2        rightMotor          NXT Motor             Right side motor
Motor Port 3        leftMotor           NXT Motor             Left side motor
Sensor Port S3      lightSensor         NXT Line Follower     Front-center, facing down


//+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++| MAIN |+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
task main()
  wait1Msec(2000);          // The program waits for 2000 milliseconds before continuing.

  int threshold = 45;       /* found by taking a reading on both DARK and LIGHT    */
                            /* surfaces, adding them together, then dividing by 2. */

  nMotorEncoder[rightMotor] = 0;  // Reset the right motor encoder to 0.

  //Line Track for 5 rotations...
  while(nMotorEncoder(rightMotor) < 1800)
    // sensor sees light:
    if(SensorValue(lightSensor) < threshold)
      // counter-steer left:
      motor[leftMotor]  = 55;
      motor[rightMotor] = 25;
    // sensor sees dark:
      // counter-steer right:
      motor[leftMotor]  = 25;
      motor[rightMotor] = 55;
