Story

The project is about a robot that has a lane keeping system algorithm designed for the NXP Cup contest. The robot has to remain in between the lines of the track at all times and go in front whenever it encounters an intersection. In order to do all of these the robot, has a Pixy2 Camera that returns the coordinates of the black lines spotted on the ground. Furthermore, a line filtering is performed which returns the two lines that the robot has to stay in between. After this step is completed, the MCU calculates the offset from the middle of the track which is given to a PI Algorithm that controls the servo motor.
