This project involves the design and construction of an autonomous colour detection mobile robot using LEGO Technics bricks as its construction tools, with several sensors and controller attached in order to perform its specified tasks. The robot navigates through an open space white structure bounded by walls to search and detect a red coloured ball after successfully track a black line in specified width and length. The robot is a combination of Handy Board microcontroller, two DC motors, one servo motor, and several types of sensors such as CMUcam vision system (image sensor), touch sensor, optical sensor, and sonar sensor. DC and servo motors are used for robot's motion, speed and cruise control with suitable gears and actuators whilst the Handy Board microcontroller is used as the robot's main controlling tool and programmed using Interactive-C, a high level programming language. This project involves with an extensive robot construction works with different types of algorithms such as line tracking, object colour detection, and navigation. The mobile robot is successfully constructed, which capable to track a specified black line, search and detect a red ball as well as navigates through an open space white structure but still requires improvement when operational in a maze structure.
