Electronic design line follower

Project X – the remote control line follower

What happens if you give a sixth form design student a brief and 1 week’s access to EMP’s facilities?

The project was a line follower with remote control. The process included:

  • Understanding the brief
  • 3D design and modelling
  • 3D printing of custom parts
  • CNC of custom chassis
  • Component identifying and purchasing
  • Schematic design 
  • PCB design
  • Microprocessor programming

The results from the young mind certainly impressed us!
