SearchBot: Konstruktion och programmering av appstyrd Arduinorobot med värme- och ultraljudssensor
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
An Arduino based car resembling robot equipped with heat- and ultrasonic sensors has been developed as a prototype for a rescue robot. The robot is controlled using an Android app developed in MIT App Inventor 2. In the app the sensors' information is divided in two modes; driving mode and not driving mode. The ultrasonic sensor's information is available when in driving mode, displaying the distance in centimeters straight ahead. The heat sensor's information is displayed in not driving mode, disabling motor skills, with a 8x8 pixel, blue and red color scaled picture fully updated within 2.38 seconds. An important part of the development is the Auto mode where the robot goes off on its own and signals the app user when a heat signature matching a human is detected within
35 centimeter. If the object close by is not within this temperature range, the robot turns away in another direction. Despite it's rough appearance and slow update speed, the robot fulfills the purpose of the project being able to locate a human heat signature by itself or a app user.
