Maybe in some time. Now there will be code to drive the line without the line present if I manage to do it :)

Scale truck following the line is quite impressive. Well done!


Try invisible ink for the line :eek:

Maybe your scanner can still pick up such a line.
Some such inks for security purposes are visible under U/V light.

I have tried the invisible ink (IR reflective thing), but I cannot distinguish it from grey surface. Maybe, I could turn the thing around to see dark portion as a line and then I could see it on white surface. As this would only have a value of cute experiment at the moment, because white streets would look very odd on model train layout, this will have to wait till I have less crazy complicated stuff on my mind with inertial navigation and eCompasses :).

+1 for Invisible Ink.

Also I needed to bump something cool since I'm sick of seeing that Wiltronics project post up top. :)

I couldn't unrar the file to see. The Wiltronics project is popular. Do they sell picaxe? ;)

Some information as to what result you got, what process you followed and where that failed, might help others advise how you might resolve that problem. It works for me.

7 zip didn't work so I downloaded unrar and that didn't work either. I think winrar's on another pc.
opens in note pad. file says .rar

It's only a 7K file, no need to compress as a rar file, more trouble than it's worth to view.

2 sensors or 6? :) I'm making small ones for presents. Getting the sensors to follow a marker felt pen line is tricky.

Any chance of seeing the code for this in the standard forum way?
If you mean the .rar file, then the answer is no. There are 5 or 6 files if I remember correctly and at least one of them is too large to paste. Just download, rename the file to whatever.rar by removing the .txt extension. Sorry for the trouble, but forum would not take .rar files.
