OA Bluetooth Robotic Car

The Aim of this project was to investigae different types of obstacle avoidance sensors on a robotic car to determine which is the best.

Project Description

The robotic car was built using an Arduino microcontroller. The robotic car had an ultrasonic sensor at the front and an infrared line tracking sensor beneath the car chassis. The car was coded in the Arduino IDE and a Bluetooth application to control the robotic car was developed in Android Studio.

Project Findings

There are no "best" sensors. Each have their unique Pros and Cons. The "best" solution for obstacle avoidance is a combination of a few different types of sensors to produce the most consistent results.
