The Line Follower Bot
What it does
follows a black tape line on a table successfully and fast.
How I built it
- designed PCB in trax maker (later on went on to learn EAGLE)
- uses 2 photo transistor circuits + 1 LED on left and right of LED to detect if on black tape or not and if partially not which side of tape is the bot off of tape on.
- 2 motors running direct off of the micro controller for movement
- uses a PIC 12f675 microcontroller as the brain of the project
Programmed in basic using PICbasic pro
Challenges I ran into
I lost a part of the project I couldn't get a hold of until the due date, so I made sure to troubleshoot and make sure it functions perfectly before the due date to ensure successful operation. As soon as part was available to me I was able to get the robot functioning in under 30 minutes.
What's next for Line Follower robot
going on a shelf in my room to display the progress I have made in robotic design, circuitry and programming over the years
