A LEGO MindStorms Robot that uses the RCX and 3 LightSensors to follow line with speed in excess of 3 feet per second.
PivotPoint has the drive motors and LightSensors on a seperate part that is attached to the main body by a turntable. This assembely allows it to move faster and respond to the line better. The lights on the sides are attached to the motor ports, so that when more and less power is applied, they get brighter and dimmer, which creates a really cool affect in the dark. (link to video to come soon).
I call it COLLIDEscope because: A. It's colorful. B. It's a Sumo. It smashes into stuff.
It fits inside the size limit by starting on it's back, and then at the start of the round the wheels jerk back so that the entire thing falls forward.
It uses a LEGO MindStorms RCX and is programmed in RobotC 2.2.
A Line Maze solving robot made with a LEGO Mindstorms NXT and programmed in RobotC 3.04.
It uses 2 LEGO RCX Light Sensors and 2 LEGO NXT Light Sensors. I call it FastTrack 'cause it's the fastest LEGO Maze Solver I've ever seen.
