could one of u geniuses help me write this code


The purpose of the LDR’S are to track the sun light and turn the solar panels 1 degree every 15 mins. Then after it has completed a course of 8 hours it should come back to its original position it was the previous day. (at night time).



3. The solar panels are already tilted to 15 degrees and it only need the LDR’S to be programmed to move 1 degree every 15 mins for an course of 8 hours. That’s all when it comes to programming the tracker.

Perhaps if you show us what you've done so far, we can point you in the right direction.

A good place to start learning how to program the Cortex is here: http://www.education.rec.ri.cmu.edu/products/teaching_robotc_cortex/index.html

Also, you can check out the Sample Programs in ROBOTC by going to File > Open Sample Program. You'll find lots of examples on how to use the sensors, motors, ect.

Maddy,

Another place to look is in the sample programs.

There are lots of sample programs that have all of the comments built into them.

I think that it is great for new programmers to begin to learn to program by looking at other peoples code. The fact that these programs include all of the comments explaining what each line of code does will really help you.

Good luck!
