This is my entry for Carnegie Mellon's Annual Mobot Race. The object of the race is to follow a line.
This robot has yet to be named as as tested didn't work quite as well as I had hoped. The front of the robot has a 4 bar linkage which would allow the sensor to ride along the ground. All it does however is get caught and drag when the robot tries to turn.
It is also very slow. I'm working on remounting the sensor and speeding up the mobot. As you can see in the video, it's very slow. I'm currently running the motors at 5 volts (regulated) and I'm swapping them over to direct battery power (6V).
The competition is in less than 2 weeks so I'll be updating the robot to get it prepared for the competition.
