Inspiration for college project
I am an engineering student and we have to prepare robotics project which includes Arduino board in it can someone suggest some easy ideas which are effective and can we prepare in short time?
Hello, Well i am in my final year of engineering, but In my Second year we prepared a Weather forecaster using arduino we also had Time limit so we choose this project, the project also used fingerprint sensors that would only accessed with a person's presence. here is a tutorial see if it help :link
Most people start with a weather station of varying complexity. There are cheap temperature and humidity sensors using the One Wire protocol right the way through to complex wind speed, barometric and even satellite imaging systems.
Hackaday has 100s of example projects.
Take everything I say with a pinch of salt, I might be wrong!
As an engineering student working on a robotics project with Arduino, you can consider the following easy yet effective ideas that can be prepared in a short time:
Line Following Robot: Build a robot that can follow a black line on a white surface using infrared sensors. It's a classic project that introduces you to basic robot navigation and sensor integration.
Obstacle Avoidance Robot: Create a robot that can navigate around obstacles using ultrasonic sensors. This project focuses on collision avoidance and is relatively straightforward to implement.
Bluetooth Controlled Robot: Design a robot that can be controlled via a Bluetooth-enabled smartphone app. This project involves both hardware and software integration and can be fun to play with.
Light-Following Robot: Build a robot that follows a light source using light-dependent resistors (LDRs). This project helps you understand how to interact with the environment using sensors.
Mini Sumo Robot: Create a small sumo robot that can push its opponent out of a ring. This project involves some mechanical design and motor control challenges, making it interesting for competitions.
Automated Plant Watering System: Design a system that senses the soil moisture level and waters plants automatically using a pump and water level sensors. It combines robotics with environmental sensing.
Robotic Arm: Build a simple robotic arm that can pick and place objects using servo motors. This project gives you a taste of kinematics and manipulation.
