Wednesday, September 22, 2010 Mini-Tank Line Follower

All analog, mini-tank, line-following robot
Chris over at sent along a link to his write-up for building a mini-tank line follower robot.

I thought I'd pass it along for those itching for a fun DIY robotics project to work on. If you've never built a robot before this could be your first!

It's based on a Tamiya tank kit, gearbox, and basic discrete analog components to follow a line. The write-up includes parts list, circuit diagrams, and very detailed instructions for constructing the robot. Nice!

Also included is a movie of the robot in action. It looks like it works really well. Nicely done, Chris!

This site has all kinds of interesting projects from guitar tube amps to turning your oscilloscope into a TV to various robotics projects. Definitely sub'ing to the RSS feed.


  1. This reminds me of the Kabuto Mushi OWI kit I built - sort of. OWI has a lot of bot kits but the quality varies imo. Someone posted this vid on it -

    Take Care

  2. Thanks for the link, looks like a cool kit. Will take a look at the other OWI kits.
