In this section, we were introduced to our project for the course; a LEGO robot vacuum cleaner.

We will use this project to introduce the different components of the Virtual Robotics Toolkit so that we can understand how the software works.

The design and testing of a 3D computer model is part of a broader engineering cycle that helps an inventor to test his or her ideas. The observed performance of the test model may introduce new issues that were previously not thought of.
