Turning Left/Right: A Real-World Example
Problem Statement:
The robot was just hired for a new job delivering newspapers. Each dot on the grid represents a house that the robot must deliver a paper to. Use driveDistance and turnLeft/Right blocks to drive the robot on the route that ends with the house on the far right. Make sure that the robot gets to the other two houses along the route.

#include <linkbot.h>
CLinkbotI robot;
double radius = 1.75;
double trackwidth = 3.69;

robot.driveDistance(2, radius);
robot.turnRight(90, radius, trackwidth);
robot.driveDistance(4, radius);
robot.turnLeft(90, radius, trackwidth);
robot.driveDistance(10, radius);
