Welcome to the robotics section of my website. This page is dedicated to my latest robot Nite 4. If you want to see also my previous projects, you can take a look here:

The aim of the Nite 4 project was (once again) to build a multidisciplinary robot capable to perform in both the Linefollower and Micromouse competition categories and also in similar ones like RoboCarts from the Prague’s Robotic Day. That means a lot of compromises which bring disadvantages against robots designed strictly for just one of these categories. But this is why I decided to build such a robot as it is a challenge and makes this robot unique.

After approximately one and a half year of evening / weekend work, I consider this project as finished. I will bring some explanation content later. Now, let’s have a look at its specs, successes, photos and videos below.
