SISTEMAS O.R.P » L.I.O.S.: The 10$ robot

SISTEMAS O.R.P » L.I.O.S.: The 10$ robot | Heron | Scoop.it

Some time ago I read an article about a contest called AFRON design challenge. The target of this contest is to get an affordable robot, with a cost of 10$, for learning robotics in schools.

So I thought it was a good cause to participate. I was thinking in a very simple autonomous robot (Traditional category in the contest), so I had the idea that a good point of departure to learn is a light follower: the robot sensors are seeking if there is a light source and when they find a light the robot goes toward it.
