RS4 – Robot Line Following Feature @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi
Samuel Matos’ self balancing Raspberry Pi Robot, RS4 uses image processing to follow a black line on the floor:
The robot has a new feature, it can follow a black line painted on the floor.
I’ve created a new sign with a line, when the robot reads this sign it will begin the line following process.
In fact the line following feature is implemented in a very simple way. Because the line is black is easy to isolate from the ground and this is performed using a simple binarization. Here are the steps of the implemented feature.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
