    Hi guys,

    I am trying to build a maze solving robot for a local competition.I have decided to use IR sensors to detect the walls as I plan to solve the maze by the wall following algorithm. However, I dont really know the circuit for a wall detecting IR sensor...I have found some on the net but those circuits are for the line following robot:confused:.Can anyone please help me with the Circuit...pls:D

    I have built two circuits for IR detection, and have used them many times on robots:

    I suggest you use the sonar sensor for more accurate result.
