View Full Version : linetrac_c program doubt

02-13-2006, 12:20 PM
Hi ,

I am balaji working in IT(application side). I am a beginners in
robotic .I tried small parallel port application to glow LEDs using
outportb.Now i will try to develop the line tracking robot.Before that i gone
through linetrac_c program in roboticsindia.com to understand
the logic.
In that i have some doubt.could you please clarify it.

1. what are the header files need to be included in this?

2. what for motor and analog function and what does it contain ?Are
they inbuild functions, if so what header file need to be included.

If possible could anyone send me the complete program.

Thanks in advance,

r u talking about microcontroller program or a normal C program
If you are talking about microcontroller, then u have to study microcontroller beginning, but it takes less time. put the algo here, mostly it will be the uC pgm.

your correct...i need normal c program.

u want a line follower controller by parallel port. But that is not good one bcz u had to carry all the cables. If you want a beginner one then see mine. Better start with microcontroller.

which microcontroller have u used?Also I searched in your site.I was not getting the program.

Also tell me the sites for microcontroller beginners.

one basic doubt.don't mistake me.Is microcontroller programming is specific to particular controller?

i am using AVR microcontroller. Ya there are different family of microcontrollers - 8051,pic,avr. But in a family there are a number of microcontrollers. Mine one was with transistor.
