Latest Robotics Projects Ideas for Engineering Students

The robot is an intelligent mechanical device and the first robots are made-up by “Czech Playwright Carel Capek” in the year 1920. Robotics is a branch of engineering which deals with designing, creating and operations. The word robotics was derived from the term robot. In the present days, there are few varieties of robots are available like serial type, parallel type, walking type and mobile type robots. The parts of the robotics mainly comprise power supply, controllers, grippers, manipulators and end effectors.

Latest Robotics Projects

When we think about a robot, the primary factor that strikes our mind is that it imitates somebody’s. However, in real terms, there’s no actual definition of a robot. But, there are some basic characteristics that a robot ought to have like intelligence, sensing, energy, and movement, etc. Some robots do the work by themselves to perform particular tasks. But, alternative robots need help fro human beings. As a result, these robots are dependent.  Robotics projects are used completely in different applications like medical, space communication and military applications

Latest Robotics Projects for Engineering Students

Nowadays, several engineering students are showing a lot of interest in robotics projects. They create a lot of interest as compared to other electronics projects. In education level, these projects on robotics are very popular, they are are line following robot, pick and place robot, fire fighting, wall track, humanoid, and Hexapod, etc. These projects on robotics for engineering students will helpful while doing the practice. So, we tend to advise engineering students to select from these robotics kits as these are capable of operating for them.

War Field Spying Robot using Night Vision Wireless Camera

The main intention of this project to design a robotic vehicle using RF technology and wireless camera, where RF technology is used for remote operation and wireless camera is used for monitoring purposes. The robot along with a camera can transmit video with night vision capabilities. This type of robot is helpful in the war fields for spying. An 8051 microcontroller is used for the desired operations.

War Field Spying Robot with Night Vision Wireless Camera

This project uses a night vision camera to capture images even in dark places and transmits wirelessly to a TV receiver unit. These robots are used in military applications like sending the information to the control unit and spy on enemy lands. This robot is controlled by using RF communication with a set of pushbuttons.

Furthermore, this project can be designed using DTMF technology. Using this technology we can control the robotic vehicle by using a cell phone. Compare to RF technology, this technology has an advantage over a long communication range.

Auto Metro Train that Shuttles between Two Stations

The main goal of this project is to demonstrate the technology, which used in a metro train movement. This project is used in many developed countries. The metro train is equipped with a controller, which allows the automatic running of the train from one station to another.

Auto Metro Train to Shuttle between Stations

This auto metro train project is designed with an automatic start and stop mechanism. So that the metro train stops at a particular time and starts after a particular time. It comprises an automatic mechanism to open and close the door and it counts the number of persons while entering into the train.

Track Sensing Robotic Vehicle Movement

The main aim of this project is to design a robot, that tracks a particular path. The path can be a black lane on a white floor. Track sensing robotic vehicle is being used in a variety of applications from being a guide at public places for automatic vehicles. Here, this robotic vehicle is designed by a pair of sensors which is made to move on a curved black lane sensed for both motors.

Track Sensing Robotic Vehicle Movement

This track sensing robotic vehicle comprises two motors, DC supply. These two motors are controlled by a transistor, which acts as a switch. The two sensors, each sensor including an IR LED and a photodiode is placed under the circuit. When the two sensors sense the white floor, then the motors give the rotation accordingly. At the turning, on encountering the black path, one of the motors stop rotating with the input of the sensor. The working principle of the sensor is, when IR LED produces light on the white floor, then it gets reflected. When the reflected light drops on the photodiode, it decreases its resistance to control the conduction of the motor switch.

Metal Detector Robotic Vehicle

The main object of this project is to design a robotic vehicle to detect metals and land mines. Land mines are unstable devices that are located under the ground and it is hazardous to detect those manually using metal detectors. In this project, a metal detector is embedded in the robot and that is controlled by using RF communication.

Metal Detector Robotic Vehicle

At the transmitter end, the number of pushbuttons is interfaced to the microcontroller to run the robot in a particular motion. When the button is pressed, then the signal is sent to the microcontroller which sends the binary data to the button. The encoder is used to convert parallel data to serial data and this command is transmitted using RF module.

At the receiver end, this signal is decoded by the decoder. Based on the signal, the microcontroller gives related signals to the motor driver to drive the motors. So that the robot moves in the desired motion. A metal detector is embedded in the robot circuit that detects the metal and gives an indication by using a buzzer.

RF Controlled Robotic Vehicle with a Laser Beam Arrangement

This project is designed to control a robotic vehicle by using RF technology. A low power laser light is interfaced for demonstrating the possibilities of ending a distant object by its beam. An 8051 microcontroller is used for the desired operation.

RF Controlled Robotic Vehicle with a Laser Beam Arrangement

At the transmitting end pushbuttons are used to send instructions to the receiver to control the movement of the robot either to move right, left forward or backward. At the receiving end, two motors are interfaced to the microcontroller where they are used for the movement of the vehicle.

The RF transmitter acts as an RF remote control that has the advantage of an adequate range (up to 200 meters) with proper antenna, while the receiver decodes before feeding it to another microcontroller to drive DC motors via motor driver IC for necessary work.

A laser pen is mounted on the robot body and its operation is carried out from the microcontroller output through an appropriate signal from the transmitting end. The laser light used is just for demonstration purposes and not a powerful one.

Further, this project can be enhanced using DTMF technology. Using this technology we can control the robotic vehicle by using a cell phone. This technology has an advantage over long communication range as compared to RF technology.
