  • Department of Mechatronics Engineering, SRM University, Kattankulathur-603203, Tamilnadu, India


Objectives: The present work focuses on tele operated mobile robot with wireless control through the customized web user interface to ensure the knowledge about the environment by live video surveillance. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Live video streaming is provided through the browser that allows the user to manipulate the robot from the comfort of a web interface. Streaming of surveillance is received and viewed on a remote desktop or even a mobile phone. Robot wheel motor is interfaced with the server using Raspberry Pi. Data is collected from the sensor and the onboard camera and stored in the database for analysis. Findings: The main feature of this robot is its all-terrain capabilities with rugged construction give the vehicle a high payload torque and multi terrain capabilities. Live streaming from all-terrain vehicle gives the user a visual interface which gives more knowledge about the environment so that the user can make decisions. Moreover, the user can control the vehicle and its direction from a web-browser interface. The user experience is mainly focused in this paper and if the user makes an error which is harmful for the vehicle an override algorithm is used to overcome the user input. Applications/Improvements: This paper was designed for the application of mobile robot in the field of military applications such as live video surveillance and robot navigation.
