msp430 line following robot building tutorialAn easy to build robot using MSP430 Launchpad and a couple of spare cardboards.The robot uses two geared motors for locomotion in differential drive configuration.The electronics part consists of a 20 pin MSP430G2553 microcontroller acting as the brain connected to L293D motor driver chip for driving the robot and a MAX 485 chip for RS485 communication. An external 6 bit port (5 ADC channels) is made from the remaining IO lines of the MSP430 to connect with the line sensors
