In any industry, a large fraction of the work is repetitive and judicious application of
automation will most certainly result in optimum utilization of machine and manpower.
Here our ROBOT plays a vital dual role. They work from an overhead grid with a rectangular
work envelope. They are mainly used to perform ‘pick and place’ actions. Intelligence robot is
developed to detect dangerous Gas/Smoke by using an 32 bit microcontroller. In our project
the robot is designed to move automatically. The robot acts according to the command given
by the program. It will move all the direction like forward, reverse, right and left. The Smoke
sensing unit is available in robot mechanism. If particular Smoke is detected, robot will switch
ON the Alarm Unit. The video and audio are monitored at the control unit. For transmitting
audio and video, RF camera has been used.
A robot is an electro-mechanical device that can perform autonomous or pre-programmed
tasks. A robot may act under the direct control of a human (eg. the robotic arm of the space
shuttle) or autonomously under the control of a programmed computer. Robots may be used
to perform tasks that are too dangerous or difficult for humans to implement directly (e.g.
nuclear waste clean up) or may be used to automate repetitive tasks that can be performed
with more precision by a robot than by the employment of a human (e.g. automobile
As of today Robotics is the vast field to explore the things without human
intervention. The word robot is used to refer to a wide range of machines, the common
feature of which is that they are all capable of movement and can be used to perform physical
tasks. Robots take on many different forms, ranging from humanoid, which mimic the human
form and way of moving, to industrial, whose appearance is dictated by the function they are
to perform. Robots can be grouped generally as mobile robots (eg. autonomous vehicles),
manipulator robots (eg. industrial robots) and self reconfigurable robots, which can conform
themselves to the task at hand.
The project is to design and develop an intelligence robot to detect dangerous
Gas/Smoke by using an 8 bit microcontroller.
The robot acts according to the command given by the controller.
To move in all the direction like forward, reverse, right and left.
If any gas/smoke detected, robot will switch ON the Alarm Unit.
The video and audio are monitored at the remote PC.
For transmitting audio and video, RF camera has been used.
RS-232 is used for interfacing at transmitting and receiving end.
1.2 Proposed Idea
A robot is designed and constructed with associated electronic circuits to move into
an unknown location and transport the details of that unknown area to a home place. The
Robot will have inbuilt sensors and cameras to achieve this.
The system is made more useful by introducing artificial intelligence to it. By
artificial intelligence, we are designing the robot is such a manner that in situation which
require decision making, the robot identifies the presence of the obstacle, alerts the user and
moreover awaits instruction from the user for the further action or it will take action by its
own. Other condition, which the robot can determine, is presence of fire, Humidity, smoke,
high temperature and gas.
Here we are using GSM modem to get an alerting SMS regarding abnormal
conditions in that environment.
This project is divided into modules for better understanding of the circuit. The modules

Embedded systems are finding increasing application not only in domestic application but also
in areas of industrial automation, automobiles, power electronic, and defense and space
equipments. 8051 are the modern building blocks for many embedded systems.The available
8-bit versions manufactured by Intel, Motorola, Philips, Atmel, etc., They are available in the
market with various configurations for different applications.
A robot is an apparently human automation, intelligent and obedient but impersonal machine.
Basically, a robot is a machine designed to do ahuman job that is tedious, slow or hazardous.
only relatively recently that robots have started to employ a degree of Artificial Intelligence
(AI) in their work - many robots required human operators, or precise guidance throughout
their missions. Slowly, robots are becoming more and more autonomous. This project is to
design and develop an intelligence robot by using an 8 bit microcontroller. In our project the
robot is designed to move automatically. The robot acts according to the command given by
the program. It will move all the direction like forward, reverse, right and left. The video and

Automatic motion detection features are able to enhance surveillance efficiency and
quality. The aim of this paper is to recognize and detect motion automatically around a robot's
environment in order to equip a mobile robot for a surveillance task. The robot design has
been partitioned into sensor, control, and planning subsystems. A robotic system has a drive
chassis having a drive motor and a drive element to control both the robot movements and the
rotation of wireless camera. Microcontroller PIC16F877 is designed to ensure that robot is
always oriented towards desired position. The required information is based on the input
obtained from a Charge Coupled Device (CCD) with battery of 12v. As the first step toward
achieving the goal, it is necessary to have a mobile robot for the detection of motion of anything, any gas leakages and the presence of heat in that particular unstructured environment.
REMOTEC is now commercializing the SURBOT technology on wheeled mobile robot for
used in places such as nuclear power plants, atomic power plants and other hazardous
The PIC16F77 microcontroller not only controls all the hardware components of the system, it
also communicates with Visual Basic interface through a RF communication using Profilic
USB communication port. Sensors effectively identify the motion, gas, fire and metals
promoting surveillance features. Also designing a Visual Basic interface is intuitive enough for
the user to control the robot in an effective manner.
A. Future Scope
There are a number of improvement and modification that can be designed and increase real
world application practically and functionally, they are:
By adopting the aeronautical mechanism in our surveillance robot, it can act as a flying robot.
The robot uses RF communication for simpler task; tis should be changed by wireless
communication using GSM technology. Further the communication between PC and the robot
can be promoted by utilizing the principles of Wi-Fi
In this project we will be developing a GUI screen with a VB technology. The visual Studio is
a tool which is developed by Microsoft , is used to develop the GUI. The robot is been
controlled through a PC. The serial port of PC is used to communicate to a robot using a
wireless technology called as zigbee.
The robot has a pick and place Arm , camera, fire detector, smoke detector, humidity
sensor, GSM modem. The camera will transmit a live streaming which will be viewed in PC.
The camera is been controlled by the ARM 7 controller. From the PC you could control the
camera position. The camera is been working under I2C Protocol, which i2c is a 2 wire
The I2C has a SDL (serial data line) and SCL (serial clock line).The I2C is a multi master
communication Protocol, in which SCL is been controlled by the master. I2C is also bidirectional. This is implemented by an “Acknowledge” system. The “Acknowledge” system or
“ACK” system allows data to be sent in one direction to one item on the I2C bus, and then, that
item will “ACK” to indicate the data was received.

4.1.1 Keil IDE
The Keil MDK-ARM Microcontroller Kit is a complete software development environment
for the wide range of ARM, Cortex-M, and Cortex-R based microcontroller devices. MDK
includes the µVision IDE/debugger, ARM C/C++ Compiler, and essential middleware
components. It's easy to learn and use. Keil C51 is the industry-standard tool chain for all 8051compatible devices, it supports classic 8051, Dallas 390, NXP MX, extended 8051 variants,
and C251 devices. The µVision IDE/Debugger integrates complete device simulation,
interfaces to many target debug adapters, and provides various monitor debug solutions.
4.1.2 Visual Basic
A programming language and environment developed by Microsoft. Based on the BASIC
language, Visual Basic was one of the first products to provide a graphical programming
environment and a paint metaphor for developing user interfaces. Instead of worrying about
syntax details, the Visual Basic programmer can add a substantial amount of code simply
by dragging and dropping controls, such as buttons and dialog boxes, and then defining their
appearance and behaviour.
Although not a true object-oriented programming language in the strictest sense,
Visual Basic nevertheless has an object-oriented philosophy. It is sometimes called an eventdriven language because each object can react to different events such as a mouse click.
Since its launch in 1990, the Visual Basic approach has become the norm for programming
languages. Now there are visual environments for many programming languages,
including C, C++, Pascal, and Java. Visual Basic is sometimes called a Rapid Application
Development (RAD) system because it enables programmers to quickly build prototype
