We finally figured out a way to do the line following
We mixed point turns and arc turns. Point turns are where each motor spins in the opposite direction, with one at a higher setting than the other. Arc turns happen when only one motor spins and the other one brakes, allowing the robot to make an arch-like motion across the field. By mixing these two turns, the robot could maneuver down the line in about twenty seconds.
