I am Ajinkya Dixit
this is my first robotics project - " THE LINE TRACER ROBOT WITHOUT MICROCONTROLLER "
These robot contains no any kind of microcontrollers , instead it uses only integrated circuit (IC) and some other electronics parts.
There is a great problem with me about microcontroller's, because of my trade (INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY). I have no any knowledge about microcontroller's but , electronics and robotics is my hobby and strength also. So to making these line follower robot i have struggled from last two months. Finally it's made!!!! . I have made these robot without anyones help and lessions about electronics and robotics.
So r u interested in making these robot ??? then see the following steps.
For this project u will need following components :
1. IC - L2963D The motor driver IC .x 1
2. LDR'S (Light Depending Resistors) x 2
3. White LED's x 2
4. Resistors 10 k x 4
Resistors 100 Ohm x 2
5. POT'S 20k x 2
6. Generel PCB'S.
7. 7-Segment displays (i have used 5 displays. It depends on what u want to display.)
8. 9 v Battery x 2
9. 3 or 6 v DC Geared Motors x 2 .
10. Some other miscellineous parts.
Also the main circuit board is my homemade PCB made out of generel purpose pcb.
to make this u will need:
1.A small PCB(Single sided).
2.Laser printer(only laser printer is better) & OHP sheet.
3.FeCl3(Ferrus Cloride) PCB Etching Solution.
Gathered Parts Together?
See next step....
