A cute companion to aid you in lamp finding endeavours. The Moth-mobile mindlessly rams into the brightest object in the room, just like a real moth!
Car of moth follow light
We used an arduino and light sensors to detect where the strongest light source relative to the car was, and constructed the body with cardboard. We connected wheels to the arduino to actually move the car.
One of the biggest challenges was figuring out how to actually make the wheels move in the direction we wanted. We had to figure out the angle we needed to move the car and how the wheels have to move relative to each other to achieve that angle.
This is the first time any of us incorporated both making our own hardware and implementing our own software.
It is extremely hard to cut corners in hardware projects, it is definitely very time consuming.
We will mass produce them and then use them to take over all sources of light.
