As an Intern at Technophillia system, we had to Design a low cost educational kit ( Line follower robot)  for school students to introduce them to the world of robotics and programming.

A line follower robot is a robot which follows a certain path controlled by a feedback mechanism.

Building a basic Line Follower Robot involves the following steps.

  • Designing the mechanical part or the body of the robot
  • Defining the kinematics of the robots
  • Designing the control of the robot

Applications of line follower robot:

  • Industrial Applications: These robots can be used as automated equipment carriers in industries replacing traditional conveyer belts.
  • Automobile applications: These robots can also be used as automatic cars running on roads with embedded magnets.
  • Domestic applications: These can also be used at homes for domestic purposes like floor cleaning etc.
  • Guidance applications: These can be used in public places like shopping malls, museums etc to provide path guidance
