The project is designed to develop a pick n place robotic vehicle with a soft catching gripper. For example, it can safely handle a bomb very carefully to avoid explosion while catching. The robotic vehicle is android application controlled for remote operation.
At the transmitting end using android application device, commands are sent to the receiver to control the movement of the robot either to move forward, backward and left or right etc. At the receiving end four motors are interfaced to the microcontroller where two for them are used for arm and gripper movement of the robot while the other two are for the body movement.
The android application device transmitter acts as a remote control that has the advantage of adequate range, while the receiver end Bluetooth device is fed to the microcontroller to drive DC motors via motor driver IC for necessary work. Remote operation is achieved by any smart-phone/Tablet etc., with Android OS; upon a GUI (Graphical User Interface) based touch screen operation.
The main advantage of this robot is its soft catching arm that is designed to avoid extra pressure on the suspected object for safety reasons.
Further the project can be enhanced by interfacing it with a wireless camera so that the person controlling it can view operation of the arm and gripper remotely.
Includes complete hardware with plain PCB and a pre-programmed controller for building the project. Extensive documentation for project execution including step-by-step instructions for Circuit building, Assembly procedure and Troubleshooting. Thorough understanding from the Problem definition to Circuit Design to Programming, Testing, Troubleshooting and finally building a working hardware project.
