We at RoboticsIndia(@baseapp) are planning a new project to work on , like the title says the lowest cost breadboard friendly linux Core board.
The whole idea is to put the full BOM + Fab under < USD 25 at say 100x quantity.
Rasperry pi is great , but i cannot duplicate it or ship it inside my product to a client. BGA is not cheap.

Last time we covered the hardware we needed to assemble our robot. This time lets assemble it quickly and get it moving. And do some hello world in robotics , which is Line Following.
We will start with the Video of what we are going to achieve -
If you are building this and already have bought the parts I will assume that you will need little help assembling it , but I would like to give some pointers so that
In the last part we had gone over some ground work on how to build a fast robot. If you had missed it you can read it here.
So this time lets start with some robot building, like in previous article our target was a fast, small robot capable of solving problems like mazes , line following , soccer , picking and dragging things etc. When building we will go over the headings covered last time and pick items appropriately. The best commercial example of a robot which somewhat fulfills
Ive run Robotics India since a few years now, I can say about 80 % visitors are looking to take part in a competition. But most people end up building the same old robots making the same mistakes year after year and I am not really seeing any improvements in robots which participate in this competitions. So I thought to start a series on how to build better robots for most of these competitions with some tips to help you win. Proposed specifications are of target robot which should be able to

$size1 = isset($_GET['size1'])?intval($_GET['size1']):0;
$count = isset($_GET['count'])?intval($_GET['count']):10;
