|The Line Follower module uses a
multi-sensor array over which you have complete programmatic control.
This level of control allows you to develop line following algorithms
that range from simple to advanced. Since the module uses reflective
sensors, it contains a threshold adjustment that can tune the sensor
array to the ambient light conditions. The module connects to the
BOE-Bot AppMod socket with a simple ribbon cable and male-male header.
Where is line following technology be implemented in the real world?
