Lane Marking Color

To run the donkey car, my floor color is a fairly light. Can black be used for the lane marking, and if so are there any changes necessary in


Yes black lines will work. The algorithm is not for color but edge detection. I have blue tape that is not very dark and the car learns to drive. In fact, others have driven on yards, sidewalks and I saw one person just setup orange cones.

BTW, the large community is on DISCORD. Lots of discussion going.

Thanks for the reply, I’m going to use blue painters tape.


The width of the tape and contrast with the background are far more important. Because the system uses only 160x120 resolution to be able to handle CNN processing on an rPi, you have to have wide tape. Typical tracks use 4" wide tape.
