Autonomous cars are now the most talked topics. Hobbyists try to make them using raspberry pi and computer vision technology. That’s an approach. Another but easier way of making autonomous cars are line follower, path follower, maze solver robot. Such robots follow a certain color line drawn in certain environment’s floor. We can make them using camera or IR sensor. What if I say that I don’t want any line to be drawn on the floor, I want it to run on invisible line. This is what I did here actually. This Virtual Maze Solver/Path follower robot follows a path from a remote PC. So the robot doesn’t have any sensors, it just gets coordinates from the PC - where another software robot tries to solve puzzle - and the hardware robot/car moves the way the software robot car moves. Watch the video for better understanding. Let me share now how I made this.”
