Robots Got Talent

Prelab questions:

1. The song my robot will sing is 32 total notes long. The notes are to be selected at random, as is the duration of each note.

2. My robot will draw a bow tie by going back and forth across the white board. The basis of this algorithm is that the robot is in a while loop until it has completed the bowtie.

3. The surprise portion of my performance is that after one of the two main segments, my robot starts to run off, and an obstacle avoiding algorithm is started. This runs for the length of 5 total 180 degree turns for the robot, at which point Blimpie "surrenders".

4. The general structure of the performance is randomized, as the program can choose any one of the three components to go first, and then it will continuously select at random amongst the remaining two, and then it will have the remaining portion go last.
