2022 bESTology-Week 10

Published by Gwynn Moore on

bESTology-Week 10 Where's The Guidance?


  • Autonomous Guided Vehicles (AGV)
  • Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMR)


Students will review the two types of autonomous vehicles to understand the functions and programming to meet the autonomous needs. 


Students will further examine the functioning and meaning of Autonomous and the difference between guided and mobile robots.

Research/Reflect/Brainstorm – Time to think and expand your knowledge! 

Grab your BEST Journal, notebook or online doc for notes to document your learning. Use various sources such as books, magazines, and websites from below to learn  more about energy, forms of energy, consequences, and possibilities.

Use various sources such as the links and videos below, textbooks, magazines etc. to answer the
Essential Questions: 

  • What are some of the functions of AMRs?
  • What are some of the functions for AVGs?
  • Why is it important to understand the difference between AMR and AVG?

    Activity – In small collaborative groups or individually share your learning with your team and school or community. Creation instructions for the different activities are accessed by the links.

    BEST Connection – make connection(s) between the lesson and BEST Robotics program

    • Create an entry for your Engineering Notebook sharing what you learned from your research and how it will help your team.
    • Create an infographic or poster sharing information what Autonomous Function for your Engineering Notebook

    Community Connection – make connection(s) between the lesson and your community

    Digital Citizenship

    • Be sure to cite the sources and resources you used for your learning and projects by creating a Bibliography page in your project with the name of the websites and URL addresses
    • Be sure to include the sources and resources used in your Engineering Notebook by adding the name of the websites, books etc. and the URL address
