About Path Following Robot

Our team had a different thought while working on IR sensors and world of applications. For anything or everything we are using ROBOTS, so why we can’t use them to make PATH FOLLOWER. We call it as “Sensor Controlled Robot”.What are you thinking while reading the name “Sensor Controlled Robot”??? Feeling like fairytale story, no, it’s real. This year team TECH CRYPTORS comes with one more concept workshop where students will be able to control robot using their IR SENSORS, which will allow robot car to follow path automatically.
