Lesson 9 Worksheet 9.2 – Light alarm

Write the following program to have the Edison robot sound an alarm when the lights in the room are turned on.


The sense light icon reads the light level from the left light sensor and places the reading into the variable called Light_Level.

The first loop uses mathematics to determine what to do.

Loop until the value in the variable called ‘Light_Level’ is ‘greater than’ (>) 100.    

When the value in Light_Level is greater than 100 the loop is exited and goes to the next loop that sounds the alarm.

Place the Edison robot in the dark and press the play button. When the lights are turned on, the robot raises the alarm.


Can you think of a real life situation where this type of alarm would be useful?



What changes need to be made to the program to make it a dark alarm?

Heads up

The Australian Federal Parliament has passed a law that extends goods and services tax (GST) to low value imports of physical goods imported by consumers from 1 July 2018.

This means that all customers purchasing Edison robots and accessories with an Australian shipping address must now pay GST. The GST will be automatically added to your purchase and show as a line item on your invoice.

We've detected that you are in Australia, so we wanted to let you know that we have changed your settings to view our Australian site, which displays GST inclusive pricing.
