Your feedback is greatly appreciated.


The robot is supposed to find a black line in a white background and follow it, while searching for cans randomly placed Parallelly to the line. Once a can is detected, the robot must maneuver correctly towards it, retrieve the can and go back to the path. Everything is done autonomously without any user interference.

The robot also has a voice synthesizer and WiFi/Internet capabilities. As each task is being started or completed the robot "speaks" what it is doing and at the same time it reports it's status over WiFi to a "Web Console".

The WiFi module is based on a RCM5600W microcontroller, which was programmed to provide and easy-to-use serial to WiFi interface.

Languages used:
ROBOT C For Vex Cortex - ROBOT
Dynamic C - RCM5600W (WiFi)
C# - Console Application
