Sadly, Dr. E’s WeDo Challenges and Dr. E’s MINDSTORMS Challenges will no longer be posting new challenges. However, both websites will remain up so that you can continue to access the previous challenges and all of the wonderful submissions. Thank you to LEGO Education and to the Center for Engineering Education and Outreach at Tufts University for their years of support (and thank you to LEGO for their amazing robotics platforms). During the six years of WeDo challlenges and five years of MINDSTORMS challenges, we received almost 1000 submissions from around the world. The two websites had a total of 1266 registered users from 57 different countries. We were truly a global community! We have always been inspired and energized by the creativity and innovation shown by the Dr. E's Challenges community; while new challenges won't be posted moving forward, we hope that you continue doing awesome stuff in your homes, clubs, and classrooms and that you continue to share your projects with the world! Collaborating with all of you has been a joy and an inspiration. Thank you, The folks at Dr. E’s

Smart Cane

As part of Smart Clothing challenge, I made a Blind Man's cane using Ultra sound sensor and programming into the EV3 brick.  I connected the Ultrasound sensor at the bottom of the cane and set the distance to be 50cms for utmost safety.  I walked around the house with my eyes closed and also with my puppies walking around and the Smart cane worked every single time.

At the end, it was a fun shoot that he tripped on the box with his eyes open but didnt trip on anything using the Smart Cane.
