RF Controlled Beach Cleaner Robotic Vehicle


Abstract: This paper presents the development of a modular mobile robot platform for multiple purposes and its adaptation into a beach cleaner setup. The robot has a robust construction allowing it to endure several sorts of environments. In the presented configuration, the developed robot is able to autonomously collect cans using an excavator-like claw. In addition to detailing the systemís design and construction, this paper presents the description of the developed embedded electronics modules, a motor closed-loop speed control system and the optical flow algorithms that allows the computer vision system to detect and avoid obstacles and track the cans to be collected.Focused on roboticsí competition from its beginning, winning multiple times the Latin American Robotics Competition (LARC) and the Brazilian Robotics Competition (CBR), ROBOTA now focuses on research and development, helping members and other students to widen their comprehension on robotics and promulgating the results throughout society. Although there are multiple benefits into researching robotics, a possible disadvantage is that mobile robots can be somewhat expensive due to the fact that some tests could be dangerous for the robotís integrity, even though the results could be interesting for the field. While testing some extreme scenarios may help to advance in the area of robotics, it may as well damage the robot. Considering all the benefits and problems, ROBOTA decided to use off-the-shelf materials to develop more sturdy and versatile robots, being useful for teaching and research
