Metal Detector Robotic Vehicle
The project is designed to develop a robotic vehicle that can sense metals ahead of it on its path similar to sensing land mines. The robot is controlled by a remote using RF technology.
It consists of a metal detector circuit interfaced to the control unit that alarms the user behind it about a suspected land mine ahead. An 8051 series of microcontroller is used for the desired operation.
At the transmitting end using push buttons, commands are sent to the receiver to control the movement of the robot either to move forward, backward and left or right etc. At the receiving end two motors are interfaced to the microcontroller where they are used for the movement of the vehicle.
The RF transmitter acts as a RF remote control that has the advantage of adequate range (up to 200 meters) with proper antenna, while the receiver decodes before feeding it to another microcontroller to drive DC motors via motor driver IC for necessary work.
A metal detector circuit is mounted on the robot body and its operation is carried out automatically on sensing a any metal underneath. As soon as the robot senses this metal it generates an alarm sound. This is to alert the operator of a possible metal (eg: land mine) ahead on its path.
Further the project can be enhanced by mounting a wireless camera on the robot so that the operator can control the movement of the robot remotely by watching it on a screen.
1) This line following robot can also be modified to a walking robot in any surface by using only one motor with homemade fixtures as per the detailed instructions give.
2) Similarly the same walking robot can be attached with special magnetic material as per instructions to climb a wall of any vertical metallic surface say a refrigerator body.

"I live in Hyderabad, a place that is known for engineering colleges. Went with frnd and bought a set from Ameerpet(tht hs rdymade stuff like this) and it failed just b4 viva. Thats when we got this thx to a senior who is sorta like a geek.. and let me tell u.. Its one reason why me and my frnds got thru the final sem. Works great and is useful too later.. "Ravi Teja

"A must-buy. It helped me practice in real time and learn how to make a project by looking at an actual workable unit. (fyi - you get a fully built unit and another full set of components to build another by yourself) so it was great value for us. We shared the costs by 3 (our team for the project) but i got to keep my unit as the other two kept the original. Showed it for my on-campus and got thru too becuase it not just looked neat and profesionally bt worked great later. (still have it in my room, now working with GE in Bangalore) "Anusha

"We have used it for our institution - it is available in lab and has been good for explaining various models in live during class. Strongly suggest every college dept to have it for labs as it is working well - even with regular use at lab for more than 1 year. Note:We got the unit complementarity before launch in 2014 and have later purchased few batches. The team behind it is professional and know what electronics students need and i am writing this review on their request on 13/05/2016"Mr. Ramesh Kumar Jha

A: About 4 pencil cell batteries, each with a rating of 1.5V are used.
Q: What is the RPM of robot motors?
A: Robot motor RPM is 45 RPM
Q: What is metal detection?
A: It can detect any metal / alloy by off-setting a tuned RC oscillator and giving a beep sound
Q: From how much distance a metal can be detected?
A: The metal can be detected from a distance about 5cm
Q: How much capacity of battery to use for metal detection?
A: 9V battery is used for metal detection.
Q: Why 9V battery is used for metal detector circuit?
A: Circuit is designed for 9V battery; hence only 9V battery is used.
