Blinking and Moving at the Same Time #2
/* Code generated by RoboBlockly v2.5 */
/* Problem Statement: 
    Run the pre-placed code and note how the robot completes
    the blinking command before it drives forward. Change the
    "blinkLED" code block to "blinkLEDNB" (scroll down in the
    Robot command menu to find it), with the number of blinks
    set to 7, and 0.5 for the "high" and "low" values. Also add
    a "blinkWait" command after the driveDistance command. Run
    the code to see how the robot can blink and drive at the
    same time. What happens if you take away the "blinkWait"
    command and run it?

Problem Statement:

Run the pre-placed code and note how the robot completes the driveDistance command before starting to blink. Change the "driveDistance" code block to "driveDistanceNB" (scroll down in the Robot command menu to find it). Also add a "moveWait" command after the blinkLED command. Run the code to see how the robot can blink and drive at the same time. What happens if you take away the "moveWait" command and run it?
