With every passing day, we see technology getting more and more integrated with our everyday lives. As we move into the future, technology is fast becoming the game-changer by making our lives more efficient. In recent years, a few technologies that made the biggest impact on our lives like robotics, AI and Computer Vision. These technologies allow us to automate several processes and also helps us to monitor several processes. With the manufacturing and production being one of the most important aspects of business in the 21st century, the use of such technology will greatly improve production rates. Studies show that over 48% of the world’s largest companies already rely on some kind of automation. However, robotics is not limited to the confines of factories and assembly lines, but rather, finds use in our daily lives. Having become such an integral part of our lives, it is only natural that young engineers are now taking an active interest in this field. So, if you are someone looking to improve their knowledge of robots, how do you go about doing that? Here’s a look at everything you need to know about BE projects on robotics.

4. Robotic Arm
Here’s a brief look at some of the best BE projects on robotics to help you get started on your way to mastering robotics.
1. Animatronic Hand
Animatronics is a technology that enables robots to imitate human actions and movements. It is a wildly successful field as it makes more life-like and relatable robots. In this BE project, you will learn to build a robotic arm by using embedded systems. This hand may be controlled via gestures with the help of flex sensors, and students will also learn about Arduino architecture, servo motors, and actuators.
2. Surveillance Robot
Another great advantage that robotics provides us with, is the ability to keep our loved ones safe. By always having an eye on them and our personal belongings, we can make sure that nothing bad ever happens. One great way to do that is to take the help of a surveillance robot that constantly monitors your space and the surroundings. Through this robotic project, you will learn how to build and control a bot that uses Raspberry Pi to transmit live video footage over the internet.

3. Biped Walking Robot
Humanoid robots will revolutionize the service industry as they are very life-like. This robotic project will serve as a great introduction to such robots. In this BE project, you will learn to build a humanoid robot that walks and moves the way you do. It will first, sense the environment, process the data collected and then act according to that information. Once created, this biped robot will be able to walk, stand and even turn around and move the way we do.
Other than humans, robots also have the ability to mimic the movements of other forms of life. One type of creature that robots have the ability to mimic is insects. This hexapod uses this principle to employ six different legs to move. Having six legs to balance itself on, makes it extremely qualified to travel on rough terrain. Use this robotic project to build a Hexapod Robot that uses a Bluetooth controlled Android App to move and communicate with you.
5. Swarm Robotics
There is a new field in robotics, wherein hundreds of robots are connected to one consciousness and then behave as per the instructions of a single master robot. In such a system, all the smaller robots that work as a part of the system are called slave robots. Use this robotic project, to build your own team of smart, swarm robots that work together to accomplish several functions such as recon and surveillance.

6. Voice Controlled Robot
Being able to control a robot using just your voice makes them even more useful. Such applications will greatly help in improving the lives of the differently-abled, who might not have the required motor-control to physically handle the robot. This BE project will teach you to build a Voice Controlled Robot that can be controlled through an Android App which translates your voice commands via Bluetooth and sends it to the robot.
Since we associate robots with large machines used on shop floors and outer space, we often think of them as being very complicated devices that take millions to build. However, the best thing about robotics is its scalability. People who are interested in this field know that you can build robots for the simplest of applications at extremely low costs. Furthermore, most of the items that go into building robots can be found at a local electronics store. While NASA spends millions on space robots with complicated drive systems and electronic elements, we also have the option of making smaller, and simpler robots capable of carrying out simple tasks. Here’s a look at a few things you will need to make a robot at home. Basic parts include
The chassis primarily depends on what sort of robot you want to build. Basic chassis designs may be bought off Amazon and eBay where a lot of different models are available. Some of these are built with plastic, while some of the more durable ones are made of reinforced metals or metallic alloys.
If you want a movable robot, then you need to have a power drive which enables it to move. You can decide on either a two-wheel or four-wheel drive mechanism, and then power it using motors and sets of wheels. The motors to be used may be chosen depending on how fast you want the robot to move, and also what amount of torque you require.
Communication modules serve as the link between you and your robot. In case you are building a simple, wired robot, you will have to attach long wires between the robot and the remote control. However, if you are aiming for a wireless robot, then you need to set up either an RF or Bluetooth module to allow you to freely communicate with the robot.
Sensors are very integral parts of robots as they help the robot gauge and understand the environment around it. A whole array of sensors may be needed to make a robot operational. For instance, anything that moves will need to have an obstacle detection system in it to avoid any mishaps. Such a system requires ultrasonic and IR sensors to detect objects, cameras to get information on the environment and motion sensors or speed trackers to then navigate through the environment. All these sensors will be built onto the chassis and the data they collect must be integrated into the processing to ensure the robot takes suitable actions.
It goes without saying, that the power supply is what makes the robot alive and kicking! Without it, your robot will not be able to coordinate any of its components or systems. Choosing the right power option depends on your budget, your robot’s application, how long it needs to work and also the size and weight restrictions.
Basic Electronic components required include:
Therefore, the above-mentioned list is the robotics projects for BE students. We hope you got some good BE project ideas from this article.
