Industrial Monitoring Android Robot Using Raspberry PI with Cloud Technology

P Reddy
In the existing method data's are stored and monitored in the computer memory and other hardware units. So it consumes lot of storage space, hardware unit and cost efficient. In order to overcome these disadvantages "cloud technology" can be implemented. This project focuses on implementing the Raspberry-pi controller to control the robotic movement with the help of Smart phone coupled with cloud interfacing so as to access and monitor all the information anywhere. Cloud robotics is a field of

Our project is a cloud robot which is used in industrial and manufacturing environment. It works on a ROS platform. Here we use Raspberry Pi controller to control the various devices attached to it. For testing this implementation, Android phone, camera, DC motor, sensors and a Raspberry pi controller have been used. The movement of the robot is provided by DC motors and the direction is controlled from an android environment using Robot Operating System (ROS). The controller and the receiver end is connected by Wi-Fi. The data input from the gas, temperature or Infra Red sensors is given to the Raspberry Pi controller. A camera is used to provide visual input of the surrounding environment to the robot. The data obtained by the sensors and camera are processed by the controller and stored in cloud.
