KCRS Attempts Line Following World Record

Posted 4 May 2010 at 19:09 UTC by steve Share This

The Kansas City Robotics Society is going for a world record and you can help them do it! They want to set the record for the most line following robots on a single course. If you have a line following robot and are close to Kansas, you and your robot can become part of the new world record. Terry Frederick of KCRS writes,

On Saturday, June 12th 2010, from 12:00 to 5:00, the Kansas City Robotics Society and Union Station's Science City will attempt a new Guinness World Record of the greatest number of robots to follow a common line following course simultaneously. From noon until 5:00 PM, robots from the Kansas City area will converge on Kansas City's Union Station to link together on a nearly 300 foot line following course. Line following is a basic skill of robots that is used to deliver goods from one point in a building to another. The event is free and open to the public.

KCRS has already done a trial run to work the kinks out of what they're calling the "Great Line Following" - check out the video after the jump.
