Hi Jacky,

That was the program I used to do the video.

Do you have the black spacers positioned correctly underneath the formula flowcode. One needs to be on the front and another at the back to allow the line sensors to be spaced correctly. Otherwise the robot can rock back and forth and get false readings.

If your still getting problems then how are you doing the line? I think I used black electrical tape on top of a white painted surface and this worked very well. There is a small booklet that comes with the formula flowcode that has a line that is known to work with the buggy if you need to double check.

If your still having problems then it might be worth removing the line sensor attachment and using an extra two nuts to space the sensor slightly higher up. This is how we are currently shipping the formula flowcode robots as this allows the sensor to be a bit more sensitive to the surface. The video shows the robot with the sensor in the original configuration.
