Upgrade to ARC Pro
Your robot can be more than a simple automated machine with the power of ARC Pro!

The ir beacon does that as it only responds to its own transmitter
The other thing to consider is the brightness of the sun if the robot is outside. As the robot faces the sun, your body will cast a shadow - making it impossible for the camera to see colors. It will only see a large shadow in front of you.
In both of these cases, when the robot stops following you... I suggest carrying a WiiMote control in your pocket. That way you can slide your hand in your pocket and override the tracking.
Plus, you can assign a few buttons on the WIiMote to adjust tracking values. So you can adjust it in realtime.
Because it will be very hard to fix the problem of the camera.
If not I had an idea of having a gps or something that the robot can track in my pocket and the robot can follow that.
Also, every control has a ? button next to the X. Be sure to press that button to read a brief detail on how to use that control. For more information, nearly every control has a video associated with it. The Tutorial section has lots of information
