LITERATURE REVIEW

ON

THE ALGORITHM USED FOR A


LINE FOLLOWING ROBOTs
BRIEF INTRODUCTION

WHAT IS IT AND WHAT DOES IT DO?

• A line follower is a self operating robot that


detects and follows a line drawn on the floor.
• The path consists of a black line on a white
surface (or it may be reverse of that).
• The control system used must sense a line and
manoeuvre the robot to stay on course.

LITERATURE SURVEY

• There are two ways in which a line following


robot can be programmed:

– The OPEN LOOP SYSTEM where the bot moves


according to the black line irrespective of its
current position.

– The CLOSED LOOP SYSTEM where the robot gives


its feedback back to the controller system
evaluating the error to minimize it in the minimum
time possible.
BASIC ALGORITHM
PID CONTROL SYSTEM (PROPORTIONAL –INTEGRAL-DERIVATIVE CONTROLLER)
• Feedback control system.
• The robot can make adjustment on its own.
• A reference value/set point is set which is the
desired output or the ultimate goal.
• Error is estimated which is the difference of
Robot’s current value and the reference value.
• This error is then converted into a command
to send back to the controller as an input .
• The controller is designed in such a way that
the error is minimised with time.
PROPORTIONAL
INTEGRAL Describes how the error term is
handled.

ERROR = CURRENT VALUE – REFERENCE VALUE
KD . S

These 3 modes are used in different combinations:


● P – Sometimes used
● PI - Most often used
● PID – Sometimes used
● PD – Very rare, useful for controlling servomotors.

•The proportional corrects instances of error


•The integral corrects accumulation of error
•The derivative corrects present error versus error the last
time it was checked.
