Resources and Going Further
Hopefully, this guide has given you enough information to get started with the RedBot!
Once you've mastered the art of line following robots, try you hand at other types of robots.
- You could use a robotic claw and a pan/tilt bracket to design a robot with an arm to fetch items for you.
- You could create your own remote control using various SparkFun parts.
- And, you can always give your robot a new look with different types of robot chassis.
- RedBot with Optical Encodery
- RedBot Accelerometer
- RedBot Line_Sensor
- RedBot Whisker Bumper
- RedBot Buzzer
