Construct the Line Follower Assembly

Attach the 3 Line Follower Boards (Q) to the Line Follower Mount (I) such that the rectangular pegs in the Line Follower Mount poke through the mounting holes in the Line Follower Boards. Make sure the sensors are facing away/down from the clip of the mount.

Place the Line Follower Mount Plate (J) on top of the Line Follower Mount (I) so that the center clip of the mount is poking through the center slot of the plate.

Attach the Cables

You will need to connect a 3-Wire Jumper Cable (Y) to each of the Line Follower Boards (Q). Note the color of the wire attached to each pin.

Line Follower Connections:

Attach all 3 cables to the 3 Line Follower Boards. Notice that the white wire should be on the right and the black wire should be on the left.
