Attention Makers


Blindbot: Sound Follower Robot

MAKERS: Dhruvil , Abhishek COUNTRY: India

A microcontroller based three-wheeled bot that detects the direction of incoming sound waves and follows the source. Detection through three microphones using trilateration principle.

The Purpose

The basic model developed so far can be utilised in the form of a domestic assistant to carry and fetch things around. Further development such as application of frequency filters can allow the bot to be fine-tuned to follow definite sounds, This can then help a great deal in low/no-light rescue operations in distant environments such as deserts or oceans.

The Technology

Microcontroller based functionality with input from microphone sensors and output to the wheel motors.

Additional Details

Low-cost alternative to sound detection equipment. Potential solution to remote search and rescue operation.
