GSM Based Versatile Robotic Vehicle Using PIC Microcontroller




Introduction: GSM Based Versatile Robotic Vehicle Using PIC Microcontroller

About: I'm a Human. I have Two Eyes,Two Ears,One Nose,One Mouth & One Brain (That Sometimes Work And Sometimes Don't). I'm An Engineering Student With Electronics & Comm. As My Major. I Live Somewhere Near 'Taj Mah...

This project is designed to develop as a robotic vehicle that can be controlled by a cell phones. DTMF commands from a phone send to another cell phone which is mounted on the robotic vehicle. These commands are fed to a PIC microcontroller of 8-bit architecture to operate the vehicle movement through motor interface.

Conventionally Wireless-controlled Robots Use Rf Circuits, Which Have Limited Working Range, Limited Frequency Range and Limited Control. Use of a Mobile Phone for Robotic Control Can Overcome These Limitations. It Provides the Advantage of Robust Control, Working Range as Large as the Area of the Service Provider, No Interference with Other Controllers. Although the Appearance and Capabilities of Robot Vary Vastly, All Robots Share Feature of a Mechanical, Movable Structure Under Some Form of Control. The Control of Robot Involves Three Distinct Phases: Perception, Processing and Action. Generally, the Preceptors Are Sensors Mounted on the Robot, Processing is Done by the On-board Microcontroller or Processor, and the Task is Performed Using Motors or with Some Other Actuators. In This Project the Robot is Connected to GSM mobile (using DTMF technology) Which is Controlled by User Mobile Phone. With the Help of Commands We Can Move Our Robot in Desired Direction as Per Our Requirements. This project is Advanced version of my last project, Namely, Wireless Radio Frequency Module Using PIC Microcontroller.

Step 1: [Video] Brief Introduction & Configuration of GSM Based Robotic Vehicle.

In this section, The video of working project is embedded, almost every (minimal) explanation is described in Video it self. e.g:

Press 1 for Move/Start/Forward,
Press 2 for Backward,
Press 3 for Moving Right,
Press 4 for Moving Left and
Press 5 for Stop.

Step 2: Components & Installation

In this section all the components are mentioned with some working & installation images. e.g:


Step 3: Project Report of This Module

Here I'm Linking You To The Project report Of This module. The Project report Includes Everything Related to It. Like Working, Ckt. Diagrams, Programming Code, Components List, Applications & Other Important Stuff etc.

    sensor data and sensor log apps et al have exact compass headings änd
    GPS readings. please make robot that follows me 15 to 20 feet behind me.
    My smart phone on my body and smart phone on robot wheel chair will
    change slightly as I walk in different directions. Can use pi3, 1Sheeld
    and arduino to compare comma delimited data so that wheéls turn in
    conjūnction with exact compass headings on my ßmartphone. GPS reading
    comparison will tell wheelchair robot to speed up or slowdown so
    distance between me and bot stays constant. Need bot to carry camping
    supplies on 200 mile flat trail. Will put storage contaīner on top of
    bot for provisions. Am no good at coding. I am retired but have old
    extra smart phone and can buy used wheel chair. Any assistance you can
    provide wôuld be appreciatēd.

    I’m working on a project which is about making a rescue
    robot . I have struggling with it for 4 months and now all the mechanical works
    had been done . but I’m facing difficulty in make the robot to work with rf
    module can u plzz help me…

    I want make transmitter and receiver that can control the
    motion…I mean that receiver should have control 8 dc gear motor and each dc
    motor should have a forward and backward botton to control the motion ……can u
    kindly help me with this project ….if u can make the circuit board diagram for
    the PCB ….or any other suggestion plz reply……mail me at “”

    I wish my physics teacher had explained basic electronics as simply and thoroughly as the linked to project report does
