You might have heard us talking about some upcoming competitions beginning next year. Id like to see us do a line following competition during "Engineering Day" in February. To give everyone a fair advantage for the BIG prize, I was thinking we could use an off the shelf line following kit. Specifically this Elenco Kit. We've seen this exact kit during one of our past meetings. It did very well. Participants would purchase their kit and bring it to the January meeting to build along with other competitors. We could also do a line following competition with custom built or other kit robots like the SUMO kits some people have bought. To keep it going we could also do the "Quick Trip" competition. This competition requires your robot to start at one end of the competition mat and travel to the opposite end, then back, in the quickest amount of time. What are your thoughts? Any competition ideas you have?

Here is another low cost kit if you would like to solder the kit together. I haven't built the kit (yet).
