Design and Construction of a Line Follower Robot That Delivers Medication in isolated wards
MetadataShow full item record
A line following robot is an intelligent robot that detects a line that is embedded on the ground and follows it. The path is predefined and visible as a black line on a white surface in high contrast color of the path can be a composite such as a magnetic maker or a laser-guided maker. To detect these lines, various sensors can be used. Generally, infrared sensors are used to detect the path that the robot must follow. The robot’s movement is automatic and can be used for long distance applications. The line follower can be modified by giving it the ability to detect obstacles. Using ultrasonic sensors, road trackers can detect obstacles and stop until the obstacle is removed. Since this smart line follower robot is capable obstacle detection, it will not be easily damaged, because it stops its movement until the obstacle is removed or until the path changes. This ability of the robot increases its application, especially in industries because obstacles are common in all workplaces and if the robot cannot detect the obstacle, it will be damaged failure, adding an extra advantage anywhere this smart road tracker is used. These robots can be used as automated equipment carriers in industries as an alternative to traditional conveyors. They can also be developed to handle by a home app, and one of the most useful applications of this line running robot is healthcare management.
