Military Rover Robot
This particular robot has been designed for military related tasks and other similar activities, which primarily includes assisting soldiers. Accordingly, the Military Rover can be used for spying activities and as a military weapon in environments where human soldiers are unable to access. Even though this particular robot appears to be similar to other typical rovers, its wheels have been designed to be similar to the wheels of a military tank. Consequently, this allows the Military Rover to travel on almost any surface and environment in an effective manner.

Features

1.Controllable via an Android application
2.Self-defensive
3.Self-driven mode
4.Multipurpose robot
5.Able to detect humans
6.Avoiding obstacles via sonar module
7.Auto-human detection and fire mode
8.Multiangle weapon rotation technology.

This particular robot has the PIC16877A microcontroller as its electronic control unit. Furthermore, it also has a sensor module as well as other electronic units. The PCB required for these electronic units were designed at the Java Institute for Advanced Technology and then microcontroller programming language used for this purpose was the Mikrobasic language. An Android application that was specifically developed for this robot can be used to control the robot and this particular application also allows to monitor the activities of the robot. Accordingly, the mobile application can be used to control the robot in an environment that is controlled by enemy troops. The camera fixed at the front of the Military Rover allows the controllers to view the video feed via the Android application through a mobile phone or tablet. This allows to control the robot and changes its movement as well as fire its weapon. The robot can identify obstacles on its pathway and avoid these obstacles. Furthermore, this robot can be developed further in order to detect mine bombs and send back related data. At present, the Military Rover is being further developed and it is the hope of the engineers that the robot?s sniper gun can be used to target humans in an automatic as well as manual mode. Furthermore, in the manual sniper mode, this particular robot can be used as a realistic sniper and the stellar scope feed can be submitted to the control station.
