A line follower robot is an autonomous intelligent system that can detect and follow a line drawn on floor. Line follower robots need to adapt accurately, quickly, efficiently, and inexpensively to changing operating conditions. This study proposes a deep learning controller for line follower mobile robots using complex decision-making strategies. An Arduino embedded platform is used to implement the controller. A multilayered feedforward network with a backpropagation training algorithm is employed. The network is trained offline using Keras and implemented on a ATmega32 microcontroller. The experimental results show that it has a good control effect and can extend its application.
