Wheeled Robot Design with Brain Wave Headset Control System


The development of the world of robotics is inevitable with the rapid development of supporting science and technology. There are various types and classifications of robots, although the basic development is not much different. One type of robot that is in demand and the most widely developed is the wheeled robot. The robot component itself is generally divided into 3 parts, the first sensor, the second processor or component processor and actuator, in this study which behaves as an actuator is a wheel, while that behaves as a sensor, researchers utilize brainwave reader headsets from neurosky, and those that served as a processor component or processor using Arduino Uno R3. The neurosky headset works wirelessly using a Bluetooth connection, and the data sent is in the form of a brain wave power level (blink streght level). Before it can be translated into a telepathic brain command, this signal is first captured and processed using an android handset using an application that is built based on blynk IoT, then after that the command is sent to Arduino as a robot processing component that has previously been fitted with HC-06 bluetooth module hardware. to capture wireless broadcasts from an android device, only after that the signal is processed by Arduino becomes a command to move forward, backward, left, right wheeled robot by the L298N motor driver. The test results in an ideal environment showed an average system success of 85%, while testing in a non-ideal environment (with obstacles of space and distance) showed an average system success of 40% with each test carried out 10 times.
