This is an obstacle avoiding robot using Ultra Sonic Sensors to detect the obstacles and avoid collisions while the robot is in action.




An Ultra-sonic sensor which is mounted in front of the robot – on the servo – is used to continuously measure the distance of the obstacles that are in front of it. The Arduino is programmed in such a way that it stops the motors if the obstacle distance is less than a particular value. Now the servo motor on which the ultra-sonic sensor is placed is rotated through 0°,45°,135°,180° and the distance of the obstacles are measured in all the positions. Now all the distances measured are compared and the robot is moved in a direction in which the distance is maximum and the process is repeated. The direction of the robot can be changed by using the delay function.




  • Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?

    I mean, what you say is important and all.
    But imagine if you added some great photos or videos to give
    your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this site could
    definitely be one of the greatest in its niche. Awesome blog!
