Military Robots for Real Time Applications

Military Robots for Real Time Applications

There are different kinds of robots that are specifically employed for doing special tasks in military applications. In military services, there are some areas in which some of the tasks involve greater risk and danger, and therefore, those tasks must be performed without military personnel, solely by the robots.

Nowadays, with the development of technology, several robots with very special integrated systems are particularly employed for such risky jobs to do the work diligently and precisely.

 Military Robots Capabilities

1. War Field Spying Robot with a Night Vision Wireless Camera by Android Applications

  • This intelligent robot with wireless camera can be operated remotely for monitoring as well as controlling purpose.
  • In the dark nights or dark places, this robot is capable of capturing videos, and then transmitting them remotely to a PC or TV by using wireless technology.
  • This prototype of military robot is used in war fields to know about the status of the enemies around that area.
  • It monitors the area with a camera by moving the camera to various positions or places remotely by an android application.
  • This war field spying robot uses microcontroller as the central processing unit, a Bluetooth modem to receive the command signal from the Android phone, an Android phone with a GUI application, a night vision wireless camera with remote area transmission capabilities, an IR LED for night vision lighting, a motor driver to drive a set of motors to control the vehicle movement and other miscellaneous associated components.

2. Fire Fighting Robot Remotely Operated by Android Applications

  • Fire-fighting robot is implemented as a fire engine to extinguish the fire.
  • This type of robot is used in military as well in other sectors for extinguishing fire if it happens by accidents such as train accidents.
  • The robotic vehicle consists of a water tank and a pump to sprinkle water.
  • This robot also uses a microcontroller to control the overall operation.
  • By receiving the command signals from the android application via a Bluetooth modem, the microcontroller adjusts the movement of the vehicle through a motor driver IC.
  • Next, the sprinkle bow or arm position of the robot gets adjusted by another motor driver IC that receives commands from the Android mobile.

3. Pick-N-Place Robotic Arm and Movement Controlled by Android Wireless

  • This military robot can safely handle bombs especially while catching them and avoids the danger of explosion or extra pressure on suspected object.
  • It is equipped with a soft catching gripper for pick and place function.
  • The remote operation is achieved by a Bluetooth modem via an Android phone based GUI application
  • This pick and place robot uses two motor driver ICs to control two sets of motors.
  • One set of motors is used to control the vehicle’s movement and the other set to operate the soft catching gripper, and this can be done by pressing the corresponding buttons on an Android application.
  • After picking the object, the soft gripper holds the object and places it to another place by adjusting the vehicle movement.

4. Voice Controlled Robotic Vehicle with Long Distance Speech Recognition

  • This type of robotic vehicle’s operation depends on the voice commands that are received by the speech recognition module.
  • The command can be operated by both speech and push buttons controls.
  • Such a type of Voice-controlled robotic vehicle comprises both transmitter and receiver circuits to achieve control objective.
  • Transmitting circuit consists of voice recognition module and push buttons as input controllers.
  • By receiving these signals, the microcontroller sends these signals to an RF transmitter; from there the signals are transmitted to a receiver circuit.
  • After receiving the command signals from the transmitter circuit, the receiver transfers those signals to the microcontroller.
  • And then, the microcontroller sends the signals to the motor driver to control the vehicle movement.

5. Metal Detector Robotic Vehicle

  • This robot is useful to find landmines in the ground by sensing them while moving a vehicle ahead.
  • A metal detector circuit is attached to this robotic vehicle to detect metal parts in the ground.
  • The Remote operation of this vehicle to control the direction can be possible with an RF-based remote as transmitter that sends commanding signals to the receiver circuit.
  • This metal-detector robot is same as the voice-based vehicle that has been discussed above – in which the transmitting circuit consists of a push button control and an RF transmitter.
  • However, an additional metal detector is added to the receiver circuit, here.

Whenever the vehicle encounters any metal part on its way, a resonance change occurs in the coil- as a result, the control signals move forward towards the microcontroller
