Line Following and Detection

  • James Jeffrey Trobaugh


A smart robot can detect its surroundings and make decisions based on its findings; a smart robot is a winning robot. One of the ways to make your robot smart is by giving it the ability to receive input from the game field. Using a Color Sensor on your LEGO MINDSTORMS robot is a great place to start when adding some intelligence. I have found that many new teams are intimidated by using sensors other than the rotation sensors built into the EV3 servos, but this doesn’t need to be the case.
