Line Follower robot kit (SENTINEL mark II: QUEST)

old device: SENTINEL mark I: PSIONIC


Preview

Line Follower robot competitions are very often held between students and hobbies. Apart from being the basic material for learning in electronics and microcontroller programming, this type of robot is in great demand because of its cool shape like F1 or also a tamiya toy. This robot can be adjusted through the keypad interface and 128x64 LCD ranging from calibration, algorithms, and other functions.


  • Arduino compatible based on Maple Mini board (STM32F103CBT6)
  • Burn and update firmware via USB-OTG
  • BTS7960 motor driver 2 port + encoder
  • OLED I2C SSD1306 128x64
  • external EEPROM (24LC256)
  • 2 port for mini servo 5V
  • 1 port for extinguisher motor (adjustable voltage using PWM)
  • external serial port (Serial1)


SENTINEL mark II: QUEST. This robot is a development of the previous version, the SENTINEL mark I: PSIONIC (on cover photo). Here I will include a video documentation of the previous version, namely SENTINEL mark I:



Following are the full specifications of the latest version of the SENTINEL mark II: QUEST:

For full Schematic and Gerber you can grab them here.

The part list and OS (Arduino source code) will be uploaded soon on my github
