I am very new to robotics

let me assume you are not very new to electronics...

When it comes to robotics, a beginner need to make simple robots.. (like i did not so long ago...)the ones which have some simple sensors,a pair of motors and simple control.

You need to be familiar with motor control. No dont jump into PWM if you are new to electronics. Just understand the methods of motor control, H bridge, get familiar with ICs like ULN and L293.

Control them motors. Do it in all possible ways you can, note down the currents with and without load. Get familiar with gear mechanisms

An LFR will be a good one to start with, eventhough not that easy as people think it is. Then go for controllers. By this time, you yourself will design your own autonomous car control....

PATIENCE and DESIRE.. if you have these... you can make any bot you want.

All the Best!!
