Minesweeper is a proof of concept project. We wanted to create a robot with a sensitive clip that can grab objects and be remotely controllable. For instance, it can be used in specific or dangerous cases people can’t access themselves.

In this project, I created some parts of the Arduino code for arm movements and robot movements. I also made the Bluetooth connection between a smartphone and the robot, and also a specific application for the smartphone.

Most of our time was spent on the battery, arm balancing with a counterweight, and making the robot move with a dual H bridge.
