Line following Roomba

line following roomba

[Ben Miller] came up with a really simple way to turn a Roomba into a line following robot. The Roomba already has four “cliff sensors” built into it. Ben just added a potentiometer to the two outside sensors and then tuned the pots so that the Roomba could detect black tape on the ground. It isn’t your standard line follower, but if you draw a path using two strips of tape the Roomba will gladly stay inside. Here’s a CoralCDN link to the video.

    Доброго времени суток!
    Решил поделится своей проблемой. Я ищу кондиционеры. Скоро лето, я живу на последнем этаже, на южной стороне дома. Летом такая погода, что спасает лишь ледяной душ несколько раз в день. Посоветуйте какой кондиционер оптимально мало жрет энергии ? А то у меня и куллер стоит дома + 3 компа…За электричество огого выходит :( На yourconditions.ru спрашивал, однако они что-то невразумительное сказали, я ничего и не понял.
    В общем хочется узнать мнение народа! ) Жду!
