This project is concerned with the design of a vacuum robot by using microcontroller. Vacuum robot is designed to clear a limit area of the dirt-track. Vacuum robot is also designed to replace manual vacuum systems which consume electricity. Therefore, this vacuum robot is a battery powered system which consumes less electricity yet exhibit compatible perfonnance with manual vacuum systems. The main part of the robot consists of chassis, infrared sensor, vacuum, DC motor and microcontroller. The type of a PIC 16F84 micro controller will be used. The purpose of the controller is to control the movement of the robot. DC motor will be used to propel the robot and the vacuum. However, DC motor spins too fast and has too little torque to drive the loads. Thus, gear reduction is required to slow down the rotational speed and increase the torque of the motors. The robot senses the obstacles through the infrared sensor. These sensors are installed at the front of the robot.
