The most advanced of the line followers according to the Wikipedia, DARPA website, Kiva systems and spec -minder website are :
“DARPA Urban Grand Challenge, with six vehicles autonomously completing a complex course involving manned vehicles and obstacles.” “Kiva Systems clever robots proliferate in distribution operations; these smart shelving units sort themselves according to the popularity of their contents. The Tug becomes a popular means for hospitals to move large cabinets of stock from place to place.”
