Controlling a Pick and Place Mechanism over Internet

Project Description

In this project, the possibilities of controlling a radio controlled pick and place mechanism over the internet is going to be explored. To implement the idea a working prototype of a radio controlled pick and place mechanism will be designed using components generally available for electronic toys. The activities of radio controlled pick and place mechanism will be visually monitored and controlled from a remote location over the internet using the camera mounted on the pick and place mechanism.

The Diagram Explaining the Proposed Mode

The Control Mechanism interfaced with the RF Transmitter

The Following picture shows the PC side circuitry which is interfaced with an RF radio transmitter control circuit.

The Remote Mechanism interfaced with the RF Receiver

The Following picture shows the remote pick and place mechanism which is interfaced with an RF radio receiver circuit. In the bottom of the picture, we see the CCD unit of the video camera.

The Remote View From the PC

The Following Screen shot shows the pick and place Mechanism’s View of the object at a remote location. The remote mechanism can be controlled from the computer interface by clicking the mouse on the appropriate button.

Another Remote View From the PC

The Following Screen shot shows the pick and place Mechanism’s View of the object at a remote location with a different desktop background.

About the Project

 

For decades there has been a desire and a need for vehicles that can perform in remote areas. This desire and need has come from many areas, including :

Exploration of remote regions such as the ocean-bottom, military areas and personnel transportation,

Exploration of other planets, personal transportation vehicles in regions with extreme weather or climatic conditions,

Remotely operated vehicles used in places unsafe for human presence such as bomb-threatened areas,

And more recently, for recreation and competition purposes associated with rock crawling and off-road challenges.

In this project, the possibilities of controlling a radio controlled pick and place mechanism using a PC is going to be explored. To implement the idea a working prototype of a radio controlled pick and place mechanism will be designed using components generally available for electronic toys. The activities of radio controlled pick and place mechanism will be visually monitored and controlled from a remote location over the internet using the camera mounted on the pick and place mechanism.

The Program Modules at the control center.

Real-time Video Playing Module.

Virtual Control Modules.

Joystick Control Module. (Optional)

The Program Modules at Remote Location.

The Wireless Video Camera Interface Module.

The Remote Control Interface Module.

Video Over IP Implementation.

The Software part of the implementation will be made using Microsoft Visual C++.

 

Conclusion

The proposed remotely controlled pick and place mechanism similar to a standard Remotely operated vehicles (ROV) has been successfully constructed using readily available components in the local market.

The mechanism was successfully controlled from a PC which was few meters away from the mechanism. The remote location in which the pick and place mechanism is operating has been monitored through a camera connected with the USB port of the computer and driven from the computer using the mouse on the user interface.
