Published on 17 Jul 2019. Written by Raj Vora
Robotics is a fascinating technology that amazes people of all ages from kids to engineers to working professionals. The core industries are largely benefitting from Robots because it has taken over the most dangerous and mundane jobs from humans which paves way for greater productivity and efficiency. Robots are now integrated into almost all the industries as they work on a set of instructions that can be programmed by the user.
As a result, a lot of students start to show interest in robotics at school and engineering level itself. For that main reason, we are listing out the best and top 100 robotics project ideas for you. So, if you are interested you may check this list of robotics projects ideas.
- Animatronics Hand: Animatronics is the technology that can mimic human-like actions with the help of machines. They are designed to carry out a specific set of actions like diffusing a bomb or assisting physically handicapped people by using this as an alternative hand.
- Robotic Arm: Robotic Arm is widely used in the industries especially in the automobile sector. The robotic arm is an excellent replacement for humans who work in the most dangerous and delicate jobs where the risk of injuries is more. Through this robotics project, you will be building a robotic arm with 3 degrees of freedom and can be controlled using an Android App.

- Sensor Guided Robotics: Sensors are widely used in all the electronic systems to get the desired output from the input provided by the sensors. You cannot imagine building a device without sensors. Even in robotics, sensors give the robot the ability to watch, hear and move with the help of external feedback.
- Mobile Robotics: Mobile robots have the ability to move around in any physical environment. Generally, there are two types of mobile robots. One is the Autonomous robot and the other one is non-autonomous. The autonomous robot can move around without any external feedback whereas, a non-autonomous robot needs external feedback to move around in the physical environment. The most commonly used technology in the mobile robot is DTMF which controls the robot with the help of keypads present in every mobile.

The robot performs a various set of actions based on the voice input that you give to them.
- Sixth Sense Robotics: Sixth sense is a revolutionary achievement in the digital age. It allows the user to use natural hands/eye gestures to interact with digital objects. The information is processed using the image processing technique which takes the input data from the user.
- Wi-Fi Controlled Robot: Controlling robot in a remote location is only possible with the help of internet. In this robotics project, you will build a robot that can be controlled through a webpage using a Wi-Fi connection. As part of this robotics project, you will also get to learn about wireless communication technologies.
