Abstract
This project describes about the design construction and fabrication of multi-purpose field surveillance robot that can be used for land mine detection, toxic gas sensing and temperature and humidity sensor monitoring in war fields without putting serious manual risks. The land mine detector can detect covered metals, gas sensor can detect toxic gas attacks and the robot can be controlled wirelessly by Android phone. The robot uses Arduino Uno microcontroller to gather sensor information and NodeMCU WiFi to interface the controller and the robot. Based on the input information from Android application, the robot can make moved and climbed on any terrains. The distinguishing feature of our project from traditional ones is that the integrated design of Android phone operation and multiple IoT cloud servers. All robotic sensor information are delivered to cloud servers and viewed through Webpage. This way the robot can be used both at Military war fields and monitored at Military headquarters simultaneously. This is a novel attempt to integrate field robots and IoT technologies at an expandable mode of design. Additional enhancement of the design made it an outstanding choice for deployment and use in dangerous zones infested with land mines and other hazardous metallic items.
