Smart and Autonomous Cleaning Robot
Hari Krishna,  Maanik Narayanan,  Farhad Bharucha
In this era of modernisation, Automation and Human Machine Interaction (HMI) have become the need of the hour. Imagination has become more important than knowledge. Cleaning systems like vacuum cleaners are effective, but still require the presence of a human being to direct its function. These challenges have led us to the idea of developing a smart and advanced autonomous cleaning robot that provides cleanliness and sanitation without the need of any human intervention to the system. The most significant features of the robot include an air filtration mechanism, autonomous cleaning using obstacle avoidance, determining dark spots using image processing, self-docking etc. The bot can be remotely controlled using IOT applications or a mobile phone which can turn it ON/OFF, control blower speed etc. The robot is also capable of traversing to the charging station autonomously when battery potential reaches below a certain value. It can also be called to a specific location for cleaning using the mobile phone GPS. All these features integrated together prove to be a complete solution towards autonomy.
