Abstract


A practical and simplified approach is applied to the implementation of an Autonomous Robotic Metal Detector (ARMED). The literature gives detailed information of the basic concepts and design strategies used to design the metal detector. The Robot is controlled by a microcontroller. Infra-red sensors detect the presence of objects and the microcontroller activates the required search algorithm to detect the metallic property of the metal sensed. The metal detector makes use of a Colpitts Oscillator design to detect metals.

Author Keywords: Colpitts Oscillator, Microcontroller, Metal Detector, Algorithm, Obstacle Avoidance.
