Line Following Robot Car Using Arduino

In this article, we will guide you on making a robot car that can follow a line. We will be using the parts that we carry in our shop.  We will be using CAROBOT Motor Driver and Servo Shield to make connected Motors to Arduino UNO. The shield separate the Uno's PWM digital pins (3,5,6,9,10,11) and the non-PWM digital pins (2,4,7,8,12,13) for easy identification. Furthermore, it provides a 5V and GND rail for easy connections. The Motor and Shield shield is equipped with an L298N H-Bridge Motor Driver. This allows the shield to drive two DC motors.  We will also be using...

Infrared Sensor Module (TCRT5000) with Adjustable Reference Guide

The Infrared Sensor Module (TCRT5000) with Adjustable Reference is a Line Tracking Module. It is an infrared distance module most used for robot applications like a line following robot car, product line decoder and much more. This module can adjust the sensitivity distance from 2cm to 40cm by twisting the potentiometer clockwise and anti-clockwise.  This article will talk about the pinout and wiring of the module operating with an Arduino Board. At the end of the tutorial, you will learn how to build a line decoder to detect objects. Wiring  The infrared module operates at 3V to 5V DC and produces...
