This is made from a lego mindstorms NXT base. It is the second version of a previous sumo that I have made. It is a simliar structure to a battering ram.

Bloodhound has 3-light sensors, PID, all-wheel-drive, and a LEGO MindStorms RCX to control it. It can follow the line at a speed in excess of 80cm/s.

This is a LEGO MindStorms NXT line-follower and line-maze solver. It uses the MindSensors NXTLineLeader to detect the line. It uses a basic left-hand-on-the-wall strategy to solve the maze. Future improvements include wireless datalogging, control, mode switching, and live PID-tuning via XBee radio.
