Abstract

Robots have always been an object of fascination in our society. They have been portrayed as humble servants of man as well as evil creations that rise to overthrow their masters. But where does this fascination come from? All robots share one thing in common at the root of their design and purpose they can perform tasks in place of humans. Life is filled with many repetitive tasks, and if robots are able to perform those tasks, they can help to ease an overarching burden. With that said, robots are optimal replacements for humans in a multitude of scenarios. As simple as it may seem, the primary action in many repetitive tasks is picking up objects and moving them to other locations. Be it picking up garbage from the floor, moving parts along an assembly line, or removing fallen debris, robots that can pick up and move objects will always be useful. This robot was designed as a fetching robot. It was to come with a set of objects (Garbage) that it was designed to detect and segregate into bio-degradable and non-biodegradable, and it would be able to collect these items from the environment when they were placed at random. Using an arm mechanism to lift the objects from the floor, it could then place the objects in a container.
