LINE FOLLOWER ROBOT CAR

BACKGROUND:

The present condition in Industry is that they are using the crane system to carry the parcels from one place to another, including harbor’s .Some times the lifting of big weights may cause the breakage of lifting materials and will cause damage to the parcels too.The robot movement depends on the track. Use of this robot is to transport the materials from one place to another place in the industry.

WORKING PRINCIPLE:

This simple robot is designed to be able to follow a black line on the ground without getting off the line too much. The robot has two sensors installed underneath the front part of the body, and two DC motors drive wheels moving forward. A circuit inside takes an input signal from two sensors and controls the speed of wheels’ rotation. The control is done in such a way that when a sensor senses a black line, the motor slows down or even stops. Then the difference of rotation speed makes it possible to make turns. For instance, in the figure on the right, if the sensor somehow senses a black line, the wheel on that side slows down and the robot will make a right turn.

MERITS OF THE LINE FOLLOWER ROBOTIC CAR:
1. No man power is used.
2. Easy to implement.
3. Car can be used as guider to guide visitors from one part of industry to other. 4.Can be used to transport things from place to place

LIMITATIONS:
1. In present condition this car works only as per the lines. 2. In real practice car could not be run on batteries cause at some conditions the current requirement of the circuits rises.

APPLICATIONS:
1. Industries.
2. Automation.
