Building a Line Following Robot
Here is an article I wrote about "How I Built a Line Following Robot": Building a Line-Follower
Software and Hardware
This robot is built using the concepts and ideas of a college electronics course called "Embedded Systems". The following will be the heart of the systems discussed for this robot:
- Microcontroller: Basic Stamp 2
- Programming Language: PBASIC
- Integrated Development Environment (IDE) (The software where you write, debug and test your programs.) from Paralax.com.
- Development Board: Board of Education
And topics about this robot are subdivided into these areas. Just click on the link to be taken to that page.
- Line Sensors
- Line Sensing Algorithm
- Power Supplies
- Development Board
- Motor Control(PID)
