    Dear Friends,

    I plan to make a Robot (like a car) , now I'm working on the Motor, but unfortunately I have no information about this. Because of limited time, Please help if you can guide me on running.

    The motor I have, is that I'm working with BASCOM in AVR. it could also write a program that would control speed (main goal is, to run motor in a car with slow and steady way to go),

    I have a car with 2 motors; first, for going a straight way, the second can force the car to go right or left.

    The most important thing I need is that the car should not deviate from
    the straight path. when the car deviate, we should order it to go a straight way and do not leave the straight way.

    Excuse me for my language.

    Many thanks

    This has been done thousands of times

    Google "Line following Robot". You will get all the information you need.

    BTW, it's more common to do this with 2 independent drive motors and steer trough differential drive. However, it can be done either way just as easily.
