What happened when you ran the program?
  • The left wheel (motor C) turned 720 degrees
Which motor functioned?
  • Motor C
What direction did the motor spin?
  • Counter-Clockwise
Did the motor stop spinning on it’s own?
  • No, it slowed down until it came to a stop
Is this the desired behavior yet?
  • No, we wanted both wheels to spin

Why did the Rotation sensor need to be reset?
It has to be reset because when you tell the sensor to detect 720 degrees backwards it means from the original starting point so you have to reset the starting point

When do you think this will be needed in future programs? When we use the rotation sensor.
