    Description

    - Algorithm

    Control the robots moving direction with the controllers directional buttons

    - Operation Guide if you press the forward ‘U’, turn left ‘L’, turn right ‘R’, and reverse ‘D’ sequentially pressing ‘START’ the robot will move in the order the directional buttons were pressed.
