What if we told you that you can build your own fully autonomous robot from scratch, in under a week?

The Line Follower competition by Electronics Club got more than 150 freshmen to do precisely this. The idea was to build a robot that can detect and follow a white line on a black backdrop. This not only introduced participants to microcontroller programming, but also provided an incredibly cool application of the same along with the implementation of a PID algorithm. The competition gave a flavour of control systems, and night after night of patient debugging with help from conveners and mentors reinforced the interest in hands-on electronics. Sharp turns, junctions, gaps in the track and surprise elements inserted the element of challenge into the contest. LineFollower was a fun learning experience for participants and mentors alike!
