VRT Cleanup Challenge Walkthrough

In my final video in my series on the Virtual Robotics Toolkit, I will be giving a brief walkthrough on how I solved the Cleanup challenge in 5.6 seconds!

The Virtual Robotics Toolkit (VRT) is a robotics simulation software made by Cogmation robotics, and allows you to prototype an EV3/NXT creation without the need for a physical robot, offering a cost-effective alternative. If you are interested in learning more, check it out on the Cogmation website here.

My Patreon supporter(s) for more than $5 for the month of February were: Venkateshalu, Albert Bricker, Stephen Rozmiarek and Turnabout Akamia. Thank you so much!
