Mecanum Robot Sensors Pt. 2

Mecanum Robot Sensors Pt. 2

By: Kai Hartmann

In the last post that we posted, we talked about what sensors we might need. Two days ago, we found more sensors. We found line sensors and we found touch sensors that can feel the pressure of someone pushing the button on the end. We plan to use the sensors to program the robot and make it autonomous eventually. We still need to buy sensors such as infrared and depth sensors, but we are off to a good start.

We plan to use the line sensors on the bottom of the robot to use tape to make it go to legal places. We will use the touch sensors to prevent the robot from bumping into walls.
