This guy here has an ultrasound transmitter on the target, and 2x receivers on the robot. Radio on each synchs the time of ultrasound transmit, and the idea is the slightly different arrival time of the ultrasound at the 2x receivers will give a slightly different distance. That tells him if the target is to the left or right, and motors are driven to turn to the closer side.

Last I read, he hasn't got it working yet.

If this was a Civil Engineering forum would there be posts like "I need to build a bridge. Someone send me drawings."
