Our idea is to build a pattern following Stinger Bot which follows a specific pattern that is drawn on the computer by a GUI interface by considering various algorithmic factors. It will find its applications in military sting operations and industries where the equipments or the parts need to be dynamically moved.
It uses a ‘Paint’ like GUI on which the user defines a path he wants the robot to follow. This is then broken down using precise algorithms and transmitted wirelessly to the bot. The bot then decodes this information by passing the data through an Intel Atom processor, a serializer which finally maneuvers the motors along the path specified by the user on the GUI interface. The simplicity of the interface hides a labyrinth of contraptions and algorithms- which marks the beauty of this project.
