AUTONOMOUS ROBOT PROJECT aims at designing and executing the obstacle detection and avoidance robot. A robot obstacle detection system includes a robot housing which navigates with respect to the surface and a sensor subsystem having a defined relationship with respect to the housing and aimed at the surface for detecting the surface.
The ultrasonic sensor is a paired sensor has a receiver and a transmitter sensor.
The transmitter sends the ultrasonic waves, and if the receiver senses any of the transmitted signals it indicates the presence of an obstacle. If the receiver doesn’t sense any signal it indicates the absence of an obstacle.
If any obstacle is detected the directions of the robot will be automatically changed.
This robot is fitted with motors. A micro controller is used to control all operations. According to the motor operations, the robot will operate as specified in the program.
However, the micro controller is used for the project has latched outputs and as such one does not have to keep the buttons on remote control passed for more than a few milliseconds.
The aim of the project:
The main aim of this project is to develop a robot, which automatically controls the robot using 8051 Micro controllers. This project aims at designing and executing the fire sensing, alcohol, bomb and obstacle detection and avoidance robot.
The project “AUTONOMOUS ROBOT” has been successfully designed and tested. It has been developed by integrating features of all the hardware components used. Presence of every module has been reasoned out and placed carefully thus contributing to the best working of the unit.
Secondly, using highly advanced IC’s and with the help of growing technology, the project has been successfully implemented. And finally, we conclude that EMBEDDED SYSTEM is an emerging field and there is a huge scope for research and development.
