Android Controlled Fire Fighter Robot
Our proposed project aims to develop an android controlled fire fighter robot that can be used to extinguish fires through remote handling. The vehicle consists of a water tank along with a pump which can throw water when needed. The system uses an 8051 microcontroller for this purpose.
The android device is used as a transmitter to send over controlling commands to the vehicle. The android device provides a good touch based gui for controlling the robotic vehicle.
The Bluetooth receiver on the vehicle is used to receive those commands sent by the android device. These are then fed to the motors responsible for controlling the vehicle movements in front, back, left and right directions.
The Bluetooth receiver is interfaced with an 8051 microcontroller for this purpose. The microcontroller after receiving input commands, operates the motors through a driver IC for vehicle movements.
The use of android has one more advantage in addition to improved GUI. It allows use of Bluetooth technology for communication allowing the vehicle to operate in a good range from the device. The system can also be later enhanced through the use of a wireless camera to be used for monitoring purposes.
