Practice Mission and NXT-G Programming Review
Motor Blocks
Distance, Direction, Duration, Turns


Motor Blocks

Motor Blocks direct motors A, B, or C to rotate clockwise or counterclockwise.  The motors have sensors inside them that can measure how much they rotate.  Motors C and B usually are used for the drive wheels on a vehicle Robot.   You may change the following variables on a motor on the details window.


This icon creates a new movement block.



This icon represents the movement block inside the program.


This is the detail window for the selected block.  You may change the following variables:
  • Which motors are controlled by the block (A, B, or C) (B and C are usually the drive motors in vehicle robots.)
  • Direction
  • Steering (B and C working together)
  • Power (Speed)
  • Duration (How Long - How Far)
  • Next Action (Brake or Coast)
