Abstract

This paper presents a multiple destination, multiple lines following robot which takes input from user and then selects the defined colored line on the basis of given input and follows it until it reaches its destination. Each destination is defined with a specific colored line. The robot is intelligent enough to avoid collision with obstacles blocking its path, and to bypass the obstacle and then continue following its path. The robot has the ability to return to its initial position once the destination is achieved, thus completing a round trip successfully and getting ready to be employed again. The robot is able to turn across sharp turns as it follows the edge of the colored line and not the line itself. The robot is economical as least number of sensors are employed in the robot.
