Avoiding obstacles

To use more of Elektor Proton's capabilities, I started writing a slightly more complex program. It makes the robot follow a line, while moving cans on its path out of its way. Here is a video.


  1. Hi Jonathan,

    This video looks really great. Did you put a lot of time in the programming of the proton to do this? What language did you use? How old are you by the way?

    Keep on sharing your results with all the other proton users on this blog please.

  2. Hello,

    According to me, programming Proton itself doesn't take that long. Finding the correct sensor/encoder values etc. and (re)compiling is just a bit time-consuming. Once you've got these, it's quite easy. Until now, I've been programming Proton using Flowcode, but I'm planning to do some C programming in the near future. By the way, I'm nearly 15.
