NITK Automata 2012 Winning Run
Me and 2 of my friends , Dhruv and Sanket participated at NIT Surathkal in a contest called Automata. The task was to get the robot to traverse the maze. A Laptop was connected to an overhead camera . The laptop solved the maze, plotted a virtual path and directed the robot successfully to the center.
