Whereas, a local variable is only known and accessible within the context where it is declared. When declaring a variable in C, the number of bits used to store the operator is also specified. 3, we provide a list of common C variable sizes. The size of other variables such as pointers, shorts, longs, etc. are contained in the compiler documentation. When programming processors, it is important to know the number of bits used to store the variable and correctly assign values to variables. For example, assigning the contents of an unsigned char variable, which is stored in 8–bits, to an 8–bit output port will have a predictable result.

The robot has no prior knowledge about the maze configuration. It uses the sensors and an onboard algorithm to determine the robot’s next move. 7. Maze walls are usually painted white to provide a good, light reflective surface; whereas, the maze floor is painted matte black to minimize light reflections. In several examples we use the Graymark Blinky 602A robot. This robot platform is quite popular. There are several videos of this robot available online. 7. Blinky is equipped with two wheels driven by DC motors.
