Fabrication of a DTMF Based Guided Vehicle
Languages of publication
Today's world mainly focuses on reducing human effort and maximizing efficiency. Machines are replacing humans in many hazardous working environments. Automation is playing an important role in saving human efforts in most of their day-to-day works. A robotic vehicle has been developed in this project which can be particularly used in a small scale industry. The robotic vehicle is controlled by a mobile phone that is connected to the robot through a GSM network which acts as a remote controller. DTMF technology is used, which enables the robot to be controlled over the GSM network. The keypad of the mobile phone acts as a remote to control the vehicle's movement. The robotic vehicle developed is not an Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) as an operator has to manually operate the vehicle. A sensor is attached to the front of the vehicle which senses obstruction in its path and enables the vehicle to avoid collisions with moving or fixed objects. The vehicle features battery powered motors and computer technology that has been programmed to drive to and from specific points. This research work involves the fabrication of a working model vehicle controlled over a GSM network using DTMF technology. The guided vehicle can work in environments such as transporting materials from a warehouse to production lines to reduce human effort and increase efficiency.
