Mars Robotics Challenge

Welcome to the Robotics Challenge

The build guide for the robot is here:

http://www.4tronix.co.uk/arduino/4tronix-initio.php

You should be able to build that from that.  The line follower kit is there, you just need two pillars and a couple of screws.  I’ll do a separate post for the wiring.

The code is on the 4tronix site – its also on the dropbox site.  Login details are in the email

Attaching the ultrasonic sensor – use a rubber band or the adhesive pad – either is fine.

Line follower – wiring will require longer dupont cables back to Arduino.

Sticky pad works fine
