ROBO-Z Line Tracer

                     My first robot !!

                                           LINE TRACER robo-Z

        

                   The Easiest and Cheapest Robot in the World

 
Robo-Z is a 'simple' robot able to follow a traced line on the ground.

The line must be 'dark-color' on 'a clear' support. Robo-Z is equipped with 2 high-luminant-LEDs transmitting on each side associanted with 2 CDS-cell receiving. These high-luminant-led lights give you better racing feelings especially at night. One LED manages the left side. the other right side. Each transmitting high-luminant light on the ground.

As the quantity of light reflected by the dark line differs from that reflected by the ground, the robot is thus informed of the place or is the line to follow. Each CDS-cell-sensor controls each motor in order to ensure the corrections of trajectories necessary to the follow-up of the line


 

  


In this Robo-Z kit, all the required components are included. You do require soldering equipment to assemble it

Robot-Z may be the world's cheapest and easiest robot which explore the world of robotics and can be a starting point with making of your own robot. You can adjust the speed of the robot, and can adjust the position of the sensor to get better results.


Now follow the instructions to assemble it, and enjoy yourself.



    



first, Let's soldering on the PCB. Check all the required components in your kit.
As shown in [Fig], insert the legs of two high-luminant LEDs on the PCB to suitable length and mount one LED on the left side and the other on the right side. Then rap the LEDs using a peace of spaghetti insulation tubes so that each focusing high-luminant light on the ground. Next, cut the legs of two CDS sensors and mount one in CDS1 and the other in CDS2. Then the resister of each CDS-cell-sensor is effected by the quantity of light reflected by the dark line differs from that reflected by the grounds, the robot is thus informed of the place or  is the line to follow.

 


     


     


* step 1:  Soldering fixed value resistors on the PCB top-side
* step 2:  Soldering LEDs on the PCB
* step 3:  Soldering Capacitors on the PCB
* step 4:  Soldering a TTL(74HC14) IC on the PCB top-side

* step 5:  Soldering a Transistor on the PCB

* step 6:  Soldering a Connector on the PCB.


     


     


* step 7: Finally, Putting them together

1. Place the PCB which you assembled from Step1 to Step7 into the Robo-Z body

2. Connect a battery case line to the power connector J3.

3. Connect left motor line to J1 and right motor line to J2 respectively

4. Cover the top, and place stickers on the surface of the top cover.

 

                                 


 

 



       


                                       

How it works

Place Robo-Z on the black line of 'ROBOTRACK' as show in [Fig]

Then, each of two, left and right, high-luminant-led transmitting high-luminant light on the ground. As the quantity of light reflected by the dark line differs from that reflected by the ground, the robot is thus informed of the place or is the  line to follow. Each CDS-cell-sensor controls motors in order to ensure the corrections of trajectories necessary to the follow-up of the line

Thus, positions of the high-luminant-leds and CDS-cell-sensor will be effected very much to the right control of tracing the dark line. the speed of Robo-Z can be varied by the resistance value of a 'potentiometer'.

You can adjust the resistance value of potentiometer using a small screw driver.
