Line Following Challenge

Are you ready for the Line Following Challenge? This is the first of the ongoing challenges that Quarkmine Space will be running. Members will choose a platform, engineer a solution, and attempt to rise to the top of the leaderboard! This is a challenge for all ages and skill levels!

Challenge Overview

Build a robot that can follow a line that makes a complete circuit. Fastest time tops the leaderboard! Sounds simple but to top the leaderboard you will need some real skill!

Challenge Criteria

1. Platform doesn't matter but the robot will need to be small enough to fit on the course
2. Participants must do their own programming but are encouraged to collaborate and share ideas
3. Robots must be able to go clockwise as well as counter-clockwise around the track.
