Introduction: Line follower is a machine that can follow a path. The path can be visible like a black line on a white surface.Sensing a line and maneuvering the robot to stay on course, while constantly correcting wrong moves using feedback from the sensor forms a simple yet effective system. It can be used in automobile, industrial automations, guidance, etc. Background: As technology becomes increasingly important in today's world, it is invaluable to not only learn how to use technology, but also to understand how to create it. Since being the engineer one should have sound knowledge of the other discipline.Most of the projects have limted scope to only specific discipline.This would limit ones innovation and creativity. This project inspires to make connections across several disciplines rather than learning topics in isolation as it combines mechanical, electronic, electrical and programming skills. ·0 It gives visual grasp of math and science. ·1 It builds logical thinking. ·2 It brings out innovation and creativity. ·3 It enhances problem solving skills Motivation or Practical Application: How ants always travel in a line, following ani nvisible route in search of food, or back home. How on roads the lanes is followed to avoid accidents and traffic jams. Ever thought about a robot which follows line? A perfect or near perfect mimic of nature? After all the purpose of robotics is to recreate in terms of machines what one see around to solve a problem or fulfill a requirement. The area will be benefitted from the project 1.
