Robomo Line Following Competition


#1

Robomo Line Following Competition

(I wanted to share this sooner but I had other life distractions.)
Pololu products dominated our competition and won it by a large margin. We put a time penalty on purchased kit robots to prevent someone from buying a 3pi or equivalent and beating up the homemade robots. This plan worked for us to get more homemade line following creations. Which makes for more creativity in the designs.

Here’s the results:
