This project demonstrates the creation of a robot using low cost light controlled variable resistor to follow a flash light. It also demonstrates a very simple control loop. A control loop is an important concept in the world of robotics. Control loops are used for everything from regulating the speed of the motors to helping the robot travel in the path of higher luminescence across all directions. It is based on the principle that resistance of a LDR changes with the amount of light falling on it. The resistance of an LDR will decrease with increase in luminescence. This variation is fed to a comparator with a reference voltage set. This drives the robot in the desired direction with the help of DC motors.
