Autonomous Cleaning Robot - ACR

In our daily life, regular scheduled tasks can be boring. With help of ACR, those task can be easy & joyful.

Story Inspiration

During the covid-19 pandemic, we have learnt the ways of doing household tasks by ourselves. Not only that, the post pandemic situation would be more valuable in need of keep maintaining those habits that grew within us. In our regular daily routine involves:

  • Set an alarm to wake up or take medicine timely.
  • Do Cleanup(Vacuum dirt from the floor/mop the floor).
  • Time to leave for office!(And you forgot to switch off light or fans).
  • Necessary to keep monitoring indoor activities with some surveillance device while staying away from home for long period. 

So, the aim is to building a robot that can assist us with all of these tasks. This way, life would be more enjoyable, also less effort will be required.

What it does

The Robot

  • can remember the time when to wake up,
  • reminds you about taking medicine with beeping sound,
  • helps with cleaning,
  • can be used as a remote controlled toy for kids,
  • when senses low battery level, it can return autonomously to charging dock,
  • and when we won’t be at home, it can also monitor indoor activities. For ease of access, all these have to be remotely accessible with an android app. Also the application will be secure, so that each time the user wants access, it can verify his authentication.

How we built it

Software Section. For the software section, the app is built and made freeware on the following GitHub repository. URL:GitHub_Repo_ACR. Full work hasn't completed yet, modifications are still on progress.

Hardware Section. Vacuum Cleaning Section: To vacuum clean, we are going to follow the primary approach of how a leaf blower sucks air from one chamber and blows air to it's exhaust.

Primary Design: I fabricated it with some primary components like, cardboard box, propeller, some pieces of wood and wires to hold it all together. Although I have used 11kv brushless motor, but it isn't necessary to follow my power measurement. Choose the motor and ESC, according to your need. Look closely. See? It vacuums the pieces of paper. Isn't it great that it actually works! Although there are some design flaws but it's quite satisfying to see the prototype working. We can't have our suction mechanism with paper and some wire, so it is necessary to make a solid piece of work. I have selected plywood for this job, because it makes the prototype light weight and quite durable. And the final assembly turns out to be like this.
