How to Program a Proportional Wall Follower in NXT-G

This week’s NXT tutorial will teach you how to write a proportional wall following program for your FLL robot. The program uses an Ultrasonic sensor. This comes in handy because it allows your FLL robot to follow along a wall, without colliding with it.

How to Program a Proportional Wall Follower for EV3

In today’s EV3 programming tutorial, you will learn how to make a proportional wall follower for your EV3 robot. This will work with either an EV3 Ultrasonic sensor or an EV3 Infrared sensor. Applying proportional logic greatly improves the EV3’s ability to follow the wall. This is also very useful for FLL robots.
