A good jumping point for anyone wanting to emulate this project would be to browse this site https://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/HomePage in order to get find tutorials on working with the arduino interface

how about using ultrasound for line tracking instead of IR?

madindra aryal how do you use ultrasound to detect something that thin?

ultrasonics might not be so great for this project, seeing how the more constant, reliable variable is the color of the line. Ultrasonic readings can change due to dust, dirt, uneven terrain when primed for such a thin object.
But I can imagine there being certain types of challenges where ultrasonics may be more ideal! Definitely would be fun to explore that.

I was thinking utilizing a black and white sensor something like this https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9454 madindra aryal. Something that can register the color Black through Phototransistors. but without the need to develop a seperate pcb for it making it easier for hobbyists to develop.

I’m definitely looking for ideas on parts to utilize.
