sensors will pick it up, with a standard roll of insulating tape it is fine. When it detects left and centre the mouse is about to head off to the right of the line, so the right wheel spins forward, which brings back pointing down the line and just the centre sensor is on. The opposite is true when the right and centre sensors are on, when the left wheel spins bringing it back on line. The centre sensor should always be on and additionally an edge sensor may also be on. There should never be a case when all three sensors are either on or off. If all three are off the line is not being detected, if all three are on then it is too wide. The two motors should run at approximately the same speed as each other but it doesn't matter if they don't, as if one is faster it will cause the robot to move off the line, when that motor will stop allowing the other motor to catch up.
