RoboGames 2011 – Line Follower Robots – Better Traction


One of the original intentions behind the formation of RoboGames was David Calkins' strong belief that if robot builders and fans from all different markets and technologies got together then a lot of cross-pollination and idea exchange would naturally take place.

For example, this afternoon when I was talking robotics with Markus Primbs of, he mentioned that he uses "tire condoms" to make his line follower robots more efficient.

That immediately drew my attention, and I asked him to explain in more detail. Hence the video clip above.
