My FLL team just got a couple of EV3 sets and the kids were trying to program a simple switch that has the robot drive into a wall, back up, and turn right once the touch sensor in the front is pressed.
The pressed condition in the switch has a move tank going backwards followed by a turn. The unpressed condition has a move tank going forward.
The robot just goes forward and does not stop after it runs into the wall and the sensor is clearly pressed.
We tried switching the bricks, the sensors, the cables, the ports and reinstalling the firmware. Nothing works. Help...
Thank you for the replies. I'm not sure I'm responding in the right spot but here is the screenshot:
Also, it's not a port number issue. In fact, when you check the ports on the software it shows that it's recognizing the sensor and its state on the correct port. And it does get pressed. We even tried pressing it manually just to make sure.
I just reinstalled all the software and firmware and now it's not even going through the switch! It just skips it and goes on to the last block. I think I'm out of my depth here...
