How to Set up Tape Line Mazes – Part 1 of 3

In this tutorial you will learn how to set up a line maze on a carpet or floor, the maze being suitable for a LEGO MindStorms EV3 or NXT Robot. The tape we used is plastic electrician’s tape. We use electrician’s tape because it comes in multiple colours, and is inexpensive. Feel free to use any other tape you prefer, as long as there is a big contrast in colour or shade between the background and the tape.

Two maze circuits are shown, a simple tape line circuit, and a difficult tape Line Maze. To demonstrate that this line maze can be solved, a LEGO EV3 robot that uses one color sensor is used to show complete runs of this difficult line maze, using both the right and left-hand sides of the tape line. This is part 1 of 4 tutorial videos about setting up line and walled mazes.
