## What is line follower:

Line follower robot is an autonomous machine that can follow a path. The path can be seen like a white line on a black surface (or vice-versa) or it can be invisible as magnetic field.

## Requirement of line follower robot:

Sensing a line and maneuvering the robot to stay on path, while constantly correcting wrong moves by using feedback mechanism forms a simple and effective closed loop system. As a programmer we get an opportunity to ?teach? the robot how to follow the line therefore it gives robot human like property of responding to stimuli.

Consider the practical application of line follower robot is:

• Guidance system for industrial robots moving on shop floor
• Automated cars running on road with embedded magnet.

## Hardware Required:

• 12V, 1A DC Adapter-1 piece
• Analog IR Sensor-3 piece
• AVR Microcontroller Board-1 piece
• DC Motor Driver-1 piece
• AVR USB Programmer-1 piece
• 1 to 1 Connector-15 piece
• 10 to 10 FRC Female Connector-2 piece
• Robot-1 piece

## Software Required:

• AVRDUDE-GUI
• WinAVR-2010
• USBasp Driver

## Algorithm:

1. R=rightmost sensor which reads 0, L=leftmost sensor which reads 0. If no sensor on right (or Left) is 0 than L (or R) equals to 0.
2. If all sensor read 1 then go to step 3,
3. Else,

If L<R Move Right

If L>R Move Left

If L=R Move Forward

3.Move anticlockwise if line was last seen on Left, Move clockwise if line was last seen on Right. Repeat step 3 till line is found.
