OBJECTIVE OF THE PROJECT
There are many reasons which yield to the creation of Self Driving Load Carrier (SDLC) around the world. Mostly the reason is to overcome the logistic problems that often occurred in the workplaces and to make improvement to the facilities provided in the workplaces. Usually the SDLCs are implemented in factories, hospitals, offices, houses, and even can be found anywhere outdoors without the people surround realized it.
In the industries or factories, the SDLCs can ease the physical strain on human workers by performing tiring tasks, such as lifting and carrying heavy materials, more efficiently with no signs of fatigue creeping in. They can carry far more than human workers, and their movements can be tracked electronically at all times. Their movements can be timed to feed or collect products or materials from the workcells in the factories.
Besides that, in the hospitals thousands of staff spends a portion of their day moving medical supplies, bedding, medicines and other equipment around large hospitals. By using the SDLCs, the strain on the workers can be ease as well as the hospital’s system would be more smart and systematic without any bad complaint from the patients and people. SDLCs also capable of both cutting cost and releasing more staff hours to tend and care for patients.
Therefore it is very significant that the valuable knowledge on SDLC construction is studied and be further implemented from the result of this project. It is due to its advantages to our own living and technology.
OBJECTIVE OF PROJECT
The objective and scope of this project is to create a SDLC model that can follow a trail of RF ID Tags on a flat surface horizontally. This SDLC model is using microcontroller to control all navigation during its operation. In other words, the microcontroller acts just like the brain for the model that controls all operation of the system.
The model is a four-wheeled mobile robot that has the ability to follow RF ID Tags on floor. There are four wheels including four driving wheels controlled by four motors. With four wheels, driving wheels are always in contact with the surface, because of the robot’s steering relies on its driven wheels being in contact with the surface at all times.
This project consists of four main stages, which are theoretical design, mechanical fabrication, electronic hardware design and as well as algorithm design in assembly language. The matter to be considered is how the robot can follow the trail of RF ID Tags. It is also important to choose the most suitable microcontroller, actuators, and sensors to achieve the project objectives.
