Bluetooth Controlled Metal Detector Robot

Ananya Bhattacharyya


This paper presents a new type of robot that uses a metal detector sensor to detect metallic object passing over the metal detector. The robotic vehicle is controlled using android application for metal detection operation controlled with the help of Bluetooth technology. This project can be widely used because of its simplicity and ability to modify to meet changes of needs. Based on experimental studies, it was found that the mobile controlled robot can move in any direction as per the desired instruction and the beeper in the metal detector circuit beeps whenever it encounters any metallic object.
