Four click boards in an 8-bit PIC-powered obstacle-avoiding line follower robot

Four click boards in an 8-bit PIC-powered obstacle-avoiding line follower robot by Srdjan Misic | April 25, 2016 Students from a high school in Pozega went beyond the Buggy to create their own custom obstacle-avoiding line follower vehicle with four different click boards wired to a PIC18F45K22. It's called the Gimbot. Quite an elaborate project for a group of high-schoolers, Gimbot has been designed from scratch . It has two PCBs. The lower one carries the wheels, voltage regulators, lights, and two DC Motor clicks for independently controlling the left and right wheel (our own Buggy also relies on a differential drive). Additionally, a Line follower click hangs from the underside of the board. The upper PCB carries the obstacle detecting Proximity click and a PIC18F45K22 as the central MCU. A 3.8V lithium battery is sandwiched between the two PCBs. The young designers be...
