  • Because you didn't include the libraries maybe? What is the error you see? – Majenko Aug 25 at 15:24
  • You asked about "this error", but you didn't include the actual error message – chrisl Aug 25 at 18:01

All of the errors I got were "NewPing does not name a type", "AF_DCMOtor does not name a type" and "motor<> was not declared in this scope". I don't see library includes; at least one for NewPing is needed. I don't know where AF_DCMotor is supposed to be declared but, as it is not declared as a type, it leaves all of the motor undefined. Those are the bulk (if not all) of the errors as the code stands now. Add the missing NewPing library do whatever you need to to define AF_DCMotor.

  • AF_DCMotor is also a library. – Majenko Aug 25 at 16:00
  • Makes perfect sense... – JRobert Aug 26 at 12:09
