Coding is an important thing to learn even if your not going to be programmer because so many things now are becoming automated. In challenge #1we were asked to code the Altino cars so they could do a figure eight shape. We had to go around obstacles and start and finish in the same place. We made it turn but every 1.2 seconds we made the wheels straighten so we wouldn't cut corners. We had to make lots of small adjustments to make it work. It was a little difficult since you had to change things so much and test them but we got the hang of it.
For challenge #2 we used new commands to make the lights flash and the sirens go off like an ambulance. I know that if a company produced a autonomous vehicle it would go threw so much testing that would ensure it was safe. I would like to see what it is like to get a ride in an autonomous car. I'm guessing that they probably will not have self-driving emergency vehicles because they still need real people to carry out the tasks.
