This is my line follower with PID and arduino.

It does 90 degree turns.

I will show you how i build it.

Have fun!

Step 1: First of All the Result

Step 2: Materials

Step 3: Connections Between Arduino Nano and Line Sensor

Between Arduino nano and line sensors (Pololu QRT8-RC)

Its similar like in the image, but i usea another pins.

Now,

Arduino---|---Sensor

D2----------|--------8

D3----------|--------7

D4----------|--------6

D5----------|--------5

D6----------|--------4

D7----------|--------3

D8----------|--------2

D9----------|--------1

5V----------|-------Vcc(+)

Gnd(-) ----|-------Gnd(-)

Step 4: Connections Between Arduino Nano and Motor Diver

The conection its similar like its shown in the image.

I varie the original circuit to fit with the arduino nano, so i use ports A's not D's.

Arduino------|-----Motor diver

D10 ----------|-----PWM A

A5------------|------IN2 A

A4 -----------|------IN1 A

A3------------|------STANDBY

A2------------|------IN1 B

A1------------|------IN2 B

D11-----------|-----PWM B

5V------------|------Vcc(+)

Gnd(-)-------|------Gnd(-)

VM its a special case, beacuse it goes to the positive (+) of the battery, like in the first image.

Step 5: Connections Between Motor Diver and Motors

Its very simple,

Just follow the connections of the image and thats it.

Step 6: Chasis

I made it from a square of acrylic with a motor tool, you may use CNC or other techniques.

The bot have foamy to protect the sensors from the external light.

Step 7: Code

Here you can download the complete code.

I use PID derived from the theory of control.

You may ajust the values of Kd, Kp, and maybe the base motor speed.

Those values were found experimentally, so you may try diferent values.

Nice, work! but how is the code, if we change Polulu QTR8 with DIY line tracker sensor module. I can't find the QTR8 at my country.

I want to ask that same question too. Cant find any IR array in my country
