Test Bed Motor: Turn on right motor at full speed. Wait 2 seconds. Turn off right motor. Turn on both motors at half speed. Wait 2 seconds. Turn off both motors.

Test Bed Bump Switch: When you press the bump switch, the right motor turns on at half power and the left motor turns on in reverse at half power. When you press the bump switch again, the motors turn off.

Test Bed Limit Switch: When you press the limit switch, (you decide what happens with the motors). When you press the bump switch the motors turn off.

Test Bed Line Follower: When the line follower is covered, turn on right motor at half speed. When the line follower is not covered, turn on right motor in reverse at half speed.

Test Bed If/Else Statements: Write a program where if you press the bump switch, the right motor turns on at full speed but If you press the limit switch, the left motor turns on at full speed.

TEST - you write the code yourself! When you press the bump switch both motors turn on at half speed, wait for 5 seconds then turn off. When you press the limit switch, both motors turn on at full speed in reverse, wait for 3 seconds, then turn off.
