Make your own line-following robot with Arduino

By using two constant-rotating servos, three infra-red sensors and an ultrasonic sensor, the robot's Arduino board can control and drive the robot to follow the line plus be aware of any obstacles it may face. Making this may seem like a simple project, but it's a good foundation for greater things. For inspiration here is the robot in action:
