 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hello all,
Ever since beginning to learn about robotics, I wanted to build a line following robot. That dream finally begun when a friend of mine gave me extra parts to build one. Unfortunately, I am a complete "noob" at robotics and have no idea where to start. I have a slight idea about how sensors work  but the programming part is all a blur. If someone can assist me on the programming side, i can do the build. Here are my components
ATmega328P-20PU
Gearhead Motor x2
Wheel x2 (GMPW)
battery holder 4AA
breadboard(21020)
L293D Motor Driver
2937 Voltage regulator
SPST pushbutton switch x4
0.1uf Monolithic Capacitor x8
22uf capacitor x2
16Mhz through holw crystal
male strip pins-6 per right angle
FTDI basic breakout -5V
leds x9
QTR-1A sensor

thankyou everyone and god bless

It increases your chance of getting a ban for wasting people's time.

The first thing you will want to do is build a frame. Just use some wood or metal to start with. Once you do that read up on how to wire everything together. Until you do that their is not much more we can help you with. As for the programing come back and ask for help once the robot is built.

I have posted a few links that should help you get started.
