No discussion of embedded development would be complete without the creation of an autonomous robot. Having a robot that can utilize sensors to analyze its environment and that can move by itself brings your embedded projects to life.
We are going to build a simple tank that can follow a track and pause for obstacles. It will be able to accurately (and quickly) follow a black line on a white surface and identify if there are any blockages on the track. Also, we will use a simple infrared transmitter to issue commands to the robot.

For the project we are going to utilize the Makeblock robotic platform. This ...
