The project is designed to build an obstacle avoiding robotic vehicle using IR sensors for robotic movement. An Arduino development is used to achieve the desired operation.
A robot is a machine that can perform some task automatically or with guidance. Robotics is generally a combination of computational intelligence and physical machines (motors). Computational intelligence involves programmed instructions. The project proposes robotic vehicle that has an intelligence built in it such that it guides itself whenever an edge comes ahead of it. This robotic vehicle is built, using a micro-controller of Atmel family of Arduino Board. An IR sensor unit is used to detect Edge ahead of it that sends a command to the Arduino Board. Depending on the input signal received, the microcontroller redirects the robot to move in an alternate direction by appropriately actuating the motors interfaced to it through a motor driver IC.
This concept in future can be extended in such a way that if a destination is fed to the robot, the robot can map the whole terrain and can reach its destination by deciding a suitable path avoiding edges.
