A collision avoidance Infrared Based Obstacle Detecting Vehicle system reduces the severity of an accident. Once the detection is done, these systems either provide a warning to the driver when there is an imminent collision or take action autonomously without any driver input (by braking or steering or both).
In robotics, obstacle avoidance is the task of satisfying some control objective subject to non-intersection or non-collision position constraints.
- It consist of infrared sensors which have a transmitter and a receiver module.
- Transmitter sends an infrared signal and it gets reflected after hitting a surface.
- The reflected signal is received through the receiver.
- The time difference between sending and receiving of signal is used to calculate the distance of obstacle using appropriate calculations.
- When robot is powered on it start to move forward. During the same time it continuously calculate the distance between robot and the reflecting surface (obstacle).
- If distance becomes less than 15 cm the robot will stop and search left and right.
- The robot will turn in the direction in which the distance is less.
