Line follower robot
The main idea of Robotics workshop is to build future leaders by providing them basic knowledge and creating interest in Robotics Field. Today there is a great demand of professionals in the related areas wherein our vision is to provide quality education keeping in minds the methodologies and interest between the students.
A Line Follower Robot, as the name suggests, is an automated guided vehicle, which follow a visual line embedded on the floor or ceiling. Usually, the visual line is the path in which the line follower robot goes and it will be a black line on a white surface but the other way (white line on a black surface) is also possible. Certain advanced Line Follower Robots use invisible magnetic field as their paths.
Large line follower robots are usually used in industries for assisting the automated production process. They are also used in military applications, human assistance purpose, delivery services etc.
