Follow Me Robot, Autonomous Object Movement, Remote Object Movement


The technology of An Autonomous "follow me" platform for carrying and moving objects has gone through rapid technological advancements. Numerous follow me robots are accessible with various running advancements, yet the expense is high. These robots are not user-friendly and therefore not much successful. In this research, a fully automated, economical, fast, efficient and smart “Follow Me” robot is designed. This robot has the ability to carry luggage or move objects from one place to another place. It will help pregnant women and elder people to carry their things. An autonomous follow me robot has two working modes, the first one is the default mode and the second one is Bluetooth mode or remote mode. In default mode, the user will walk in the front of the ultrasonic sensor and it will follow the user until it goes beyond the range. In Bluetooth mode, the customer needs to interact with the robot with the help of a mobile application. The customer by then has the Graphical User Interface (GUI) to control the robot. This framework enables the client to vigorously communicate with the robot at various dimensions of the control (left, right, forward, backward, and stop). The application interface is built as simple as it can be used by a wide range of patients.
