The microprocessor(CPU) is the brain of a robot.

CPU=central processing unit=microprocessor

Things a microprocessor do:

  • Coordinate input and output, like sensor data going in and directions on what to do going out.
  • Manage power, directs how much power goes to which part of the robot. So, CPU would be food pantry boss directing who gets 5 volts and who gets 3 volts.
  • Calculate, CPU does all the calculation needed. So, you could have a robot count from 1-5 or 1+5. That's simple calculation. CPU does that.
