Project Scout Update!

Hey everyone,

If you saw my previous post, I talked about how one robot goes forward for a random distance, and then tells another robot how far it traveled. Additionally, I showed that a robot can tell another robot whether to turn left or right, whereupon the robot receiving the commands would do so accordingly.

This morning, I thought it would be eventual to combine those actions.
The video below illustrates what I've come up with.

In this video, Robot1 (on the left) goes forward for a random distance and then randomly turns either left or right. Next, Robot1 "tells" Robot2 (on the right) what actions it just performed and then Robot2 executes those exact same movements.
