then the 3V and 1.5V terminals on silkscreen are for??also./...where do i wire the 6V +,- terminals on the circuit??
No, the circuit supply is 6V. The power comes from ends of battery holder and its mid-pins only used for fastening it.
i have seen the entire circuit thoroughly.......it needs only 3 AA batteries right..........i don't see the use of a 4th AA battery because it will just be left unconnected.......and the circuit only requires one 3V Supply and one 1.5V Supply.
Use a faster motor & gearbox. Less gears, less power, more speed.
HiHow can I increase speed of motor? (robot should follow the line at the same time.)There should be some methods. Can you enlighten me?
Cheap Logic Analyzer
Cheap STK500 AVR programmer for Atmel Studio
Thanks a lot! :-)
Both work same. The code is written in Basic language, and all variables and symbols names are obviousse. The symbols are ti micro pins. Other parts of code that you don't understand is for configuring PIC and you don't need them for Arduino. Only parts that you understand is enough.
Is it going to affect the performance of the robot I mean PIC microcontrolers v/s Arduino . Besides, I'm a bit new to electronics and don't actually know how to program the PIC microcontrolers so, I'll not be able to understand the program for them that you have given in the instructable. Please explain me the logic of your program of the line follower :-)
You can use any microcontroller you want, design a new circuit for your arduino and change the code for it, it's very easy!
I'd like to know that if I could achieve the same level of line following by using an Adruino ; because it's been only about an year or two since I have started electronics and I actually don't know anything about using PIC microcontrolers. :-)
Hi, thank you for thisCan you advise how to set RTS and DTR to high?RegardsNick
You must set RTS or DTR by the program that uses the serial port.
USB to TTL UART Converter
Digital Measuring Tape
Just use battery holder ends. (posetive pole is +3V and negetive pole is -3V) I marked others (+1.5V, -1.5V, 0V) just for fastening battery holder.
sir, i'm little confused with the battery connections. some explanation would be great :-)
yep....just took a close look at it......it really is nothing but a pair of ir leds......:) thnx for being so helpful.............
So it's just that basic???.... Only an infrared led and phototransistor simply held by a piece of plastic??? If that's so.... Does usage of tcrt5000 give any advantages???..... Alsoi would like to have a real-time chat with you regarding this project.... Please take some of your precious time out for me. I just want to have a 5 min chat with you.... Be it Gmail or whatsapp.... My email Id:email@example.com
Please tell me the "cheaper "alternatives for TCRT5000 which are not hard to find online.......
thnxi will do that
i have a lot of toy motors in spare..they don't have a gearbox...Will they work??
thnx for your quick reply....would you please provide me with the link for buying this motor...also you may find the most cheap motor compatible with this line follower.....Sorry to bother you , but i just dont have enough money to try out things....it has to be perfect in the first purchase.....Thanks in advance
is it necessary for the motor to have a gearbox??
Hi .help me plz im in a compete 0911 462 45 22
Excuse me sir. how this robot is supposed to turn ? Whats the turning mechanism ? How this turns i cant see any forced turning motor ? Regards
another question sir.when i choose geared motor set,i can't find 60rpm 6v geared motor.then can i use another geared motor like200rpm???less than 60rpm is recommended or more is no problem?
I have a question.Can i make it using PIC16F877A??Is there any code to change?
just one more thing... what does "<>" stands in the .bas file.
Can you tell me the role of capacitors..?? and how their values are found..??
Can u help me?? sent me a complete routine about this venture please.. http://gamesworkshopz.weebly.com/
Can u help me?? sent me a full circuit about this project please..Sent complete circuit diagram in here or just email me at firstname.lastname@example.orgPlease I realy need it ASAP
