I am working on a project, which is to make a PID based line follower but the constraints are:

  1. 5 IR sensors are allowed
  2. Only 9V battery
  3. No microcontroller, only discrete components

I though of input block, which takes input from IR sensor and converts it to analog signal, which is then fed into a PID controller.

For DAC I am using a R-2R ladder DAC.

Can anyone please suggest an alternative to using relays as used here.

My control signal will have 5V.

  • \$\begingroup\$ generally you wouldn't make a discrete r2r ladder, you would buy a dac. Why do you want to make one? \$\endgroup\$ – BeB00 Jun 4 '20 at 7:41
  • \$\begingroup\$ Tips: (1) Turn off the background grid before taking the screengrab. It improves legibility. (2) Crop the image to the relevant section. 75% of your screengrab is irrelevant and requires your reader to load the image separately and pan and zoom. \$\endgroup\$ – Transistor Jun 4 '20 at 7:45
