Hi Patrick, thanks for the kind words. I wish the pandemic will be over soon (for all the obvious humanitarian reasons of course) but also so the competitions can resume and I can finally travel to showcase and compete. I will surely let you guys know of any progress and competition openings as they become available.
I would also love to experiment with higher output motor drivers (I see you have some interesting choices over there) and higher rpm motors and even a couple more QTRX configurations and I strongly believe I could make it go significantly faster and smoother, but the current situation with so many shipping delays and my very limited funding for this project (being so far away form the States means I have to pay for the more expensive shipping methods and then add imports taxes, handling fees and then local VAT on top of all of that), prohibits me from further advancing this project at the moment.
It still is a very good result, but making the fastest Line Following robot in the world is also a goal that I never want to give up, I just wish there was a way to have the opportunity to experiment more. I can put the work and I am stubborn, so I believe I could do it, had I have the chance.
