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.
Bwa ha ha ha ha ha ha.

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.
It’s almost here! C&A Robot Factory and Chibots present Fall Chibotica 2012. Fall Chibotica is a robotics showcase and games where robots compete against each other in different events.
The Green Machine is a LEGO drag racer. It has and average speed of 4 feet-per-second. It uses a PID algorithm and the MindSensors NXTLineLeader to stay on the line.
Robot Drag Racing - Ultimate speed and accuragy test!
