Can you give us an example of the event of “Drive strained”?
What is all about exactly?
August 24, 2015
The ‘drive strained’ block from the Event category can be used to trigger a subroutine if Edison’s motors stop moving while Edison is carrying out drive commands. This means that whenever the Edison is driving along and someone or something stops the wheels with force it will trigger.
Here is a share code for a program I wrote for you: https://www.edscratchapp.com?share=qDrm4wbV
I suggest running this program while holding the Edison by its body. The Edisons motors will be running in reverse for 320 Seconds. While the Edison is running in reverse, try and stop the wheels by grabbing onto them. The Edison will detect that the motors are under strain. The Edison will start to beep.
I hope this helps you.
