Project Name: Line Follower Controlled by: Programming orRemote Control Programming Difficulty: Medium-Difficult Construction Difficulty: Medium General Comment. This can be tricky, but it is also very rewarding.
Rules FOR STUDENTS
You must use: -1 NXT or EV brick -2 motors -colour sensor (light sensor)
You must: Build a robot pass all the checkpoints along a path and reach the end, knocking over a target (such as a can)
Tips For students
Tip: Movements need to be short as indicated in sample programming. In that example, (based on a RED LINE ), each movement only goes for 0.16 rotations. Lots of trial and error needed, depending on your robot, and the line you are trying to follow!
This is what you want your robot to do when it DOES NOT see the coloured line. (X)
Grading option: The quicker the time, the better the grade. If you are timing each robot, make a copy of this Google Sheet to help you score If you want to record checkpoints use this sheet.
