Example text

When events cause state changes, our particular FSM is called event-driven. The actions the machine performs in its different states determine its visible behavior. Therefore, the most expressive way to represent FSMs is the state diagram, as shown in Figure 3-1. 47 48 CHAPTER 3 ■ FINITE STATE MACHINES Figure 3-1. A general FSM diagram The circles (nodes) with a name inside represent the states (Si, Sj, and Sk in Figure 3-1). The oriented arcs going from one state to another represent the transitions between these states.

See the code for the main task of the saturating counter program in Listing 3-1. Listing 3-1. The Main Task of the FSM Example task main() { short state = STATE_0; //entry state short event; while(true) { switch(state) { case STATE_0: ClearScreen(); //wait for events event = WaitEvent(); if (event == TOUCH) state = STATE_1; if (event == TIMER_ELAPSE) state = STATE_0; ResetTimer(); break; case STATE_1: ClearScreen(); Meter(1); event = WaitEvent(); if (event == TOUCH) state = STATE_2; if (event == TIMER_ELAPSE) state = STATE_0; ResetTimer(); break; case STATE_2: ClearScreen(); Meter(2); event = WaitEvent(); if (event == TOUCH) state = STATE_3; if (event == TIMER_ELAPSE) state = STATE_1; ResetTimer(); CHAPTER 3 ■ FINITE STATE MACHINES break; case STATE_3: ClearScreen(); Meter(3); event = WaitEvent(); if (event == TOUCH) state = STATE_4; if (event == TIMER_ELAPSE) state = STATE_2; ResetTimer(); break; case STATE_4: ClearScreen(); Meter(4); event = WaitEvent(); if (event == TOUCH) state = STATE_5; if (event == TIMER_ELAPSE) state = STATE_3; ResetTimer(); break; case STATE_5: ClearScreen(); Meter(5); event = WaitEvent(); if (event == TOUCH) state = STATE_5; if (event == TIMER_ELAPSE) state = STATE_4; ResetTimer(); break; } Wait(100); } } ■Note The constants STATE_0, STATE_1, and so on that you find in the program are just aliases defined at the top of the program using the preprocessor directive #define STATE_0 0.

When an obstacle is seen, the program flow breaks out the while loop, and the Off statement is executed, stopping the motor. ■Note Remember, the while ( condition ); waits for the condition to become false. The until ( condition ); waits for the condition to become true. condition), where ! is the unary logic negation operator NOT. Remember that every line of code must end with a semicolon (;). The central chunk of code simply plays a file; here, I chose a self-made audio file that I recorded, compressed, and converted to the NXT standard format: RSO.
