Abstract: A robot is a multifunctional device which is programmed to work like human such as lifting heavy weights, stacking and emptying, and perform the defined tasks with speed and accuracy. The paper consists of the design and construction of a medical and domestic purpose robot. The design and placement of motors, wheels, sensors, and controlling mechanism has been discussed. The proposed robot can be controlled using an Ethernet cable or can be controlled wirelessly by networking. After providing connections this robot is tested indoor as well as outdoor. For medical use, it can be used in detecting the abnormal behaviour of a human and for domestic use it detects intruders, it is used for home automation, detecting temperature and displaying it on the LCD screen, tracking mobile and bringing to the user by finding the shortest path using GSM module. D-link Wi-Fi home camera is used to store the recorded data in cloud so that we can see the required data when usage demands. Tkinter package based application is developed and the robot is made to interface with the Raspberry Pi 3 B+ for its control and performance. The design and the structure of this proposed robot is modified according to our need for future use. We have performed all those features that are mentioned in this paper and equipped them more accurately.
Keywords- Raspberry Pi 3 B+, Sensors, GSM Module, D-Link Wi-Fi Home Camera, Tkinter Package.
