Build a car that travels around a ring without running into any other cars on the ring.
Someday in the future, cars will be able to drive themselves. In this project, you will learn how to make a LEGO car drive down a line without running into the car in front of it. This project is very similar to the "Follow the Leader" project, but there is no longer a "front" car. The cars travel (line follow) in a circle, and distance sensors keep them from running into each other.
