Not so scary, is it? After learning some more theory in Chapter 3, you’ll be able to build and program a scale-sized replica of the imperial AT-ST in Chapter 4: the All Terrain Scout Transport walker from the Star Wars saga. 45 CHAPTER 3 ■■■ Finite State Machines M ost simple robots don’t show much interesting behavior. Usually, a sequential program flow regulates their actions: the robot walks until it sees an obstacle, it backs up and turns, and then starts walking forward again in a loop. What do you do if you desire more interesting behavior?
They are interactive, meaning that they include a Rotation Sensor (optical encoder) that allows you to control interactively the shaft position with 1 degree of resolution, and to set the rotation speed from –100 to 100. A whole shaft rotation is equal to 360 degrees. The Touch Sensor gives your robots the sense of touch: it detects when it is pressed or released, returning a Boolean reading that can be 1 or 0. The Light Sensor can distinguish between light and dark colors, measuring the amount of light reflected by the surface illuminated by its LED; it can also measure the light intensity in the environment with the LED off.

The Sound Sensor makes your robot hear, measuring the sound intensity in decibels. Its readings go from 4 in a silent room to 100, corresponding to people shouting or loud music.
