Arduino-Bot: Video

 

Challenge: Build a robotic vehicle that can follow a wall at a fixed distance.

               

                    Add lights and buzzers that indicate if it is turning left, right, or going straight.

 

                    Add a servo motor that enables robot to scan left and right, and find its way

                    through a maze- see Explorer Bot
