C. Bot Description:
  a. Autonomous Bot:
     1. Briefly explain the basic design of the bot chassis.


       The bot is basically a line follower having collision
detection sensors. The control of bot is done using a
microcontroller.


  2.Briefly explain the algorithm you are going to use for
  traversing the grid. (Name the algorithm if it is a common
  one).
  As it is a line follower, it travels along the sides of hexagon
  and when there is an obstacle present in the path, the
  sensors detect the obstacle and the bot will change its path. .
  While returning from loading point it will choose the shortest
  path, which can be achieved by using microcontroller.




  3. Write briefly about the types and number of sensors being
     used and their purposes.
 We are going to use 4 collision detection sensors for obstacle
 detection and 3 IR sensors for line following.




b. Manual Bot:
     1. Briefly explain the basic design of the bot chassis.


      It is a 4-wheel platform with a robotic arm which can be
    magnetized and demagnetized.




    2. Briefly explain the mechanism you would be using to
    cross the bridges.


As it is normal rectangular platform driven by two motors, it
can be turned into the required angle and placed such that its
wheels go along with rails.
3. Explain briefly about the coin collecting and loading
(onto to autonomous bot) mechanisms.
 By using the electromagnetic robotic arm we will collect
the coins and we can load it into autonomous bot by
demagnetizing it. Its movement is controlled by motors.
