Robots are used in many sectors like construction, military, manufacturing, assembling, etc. Robots can be autonomous or semi-autonomous. Autonomous robots do not require any human intervention and can act on their own according to the situation. Semi-autonomous robots work according to instructions given by humans. These semi-autonomous can be controlled by remote, phone, gestures, etc. We previously built few IoT based robots, which can be controlled from the webserver.

In today’s article, we are going to build a gesture-controlled robot using Arduino, MPU6050 Accelerometer, nRF24L01 Transceiver pair, and L293D motor driver module. We will design this robot into two parts. One is the Transmitter, and the other is the Receiver. The transmitter section consists of an Arduino Uno, MPU6050 Accelerometer and Gyroscope, and nRF24L01 while the Receiver section consists of an Arduino Uno, nRF24L01, two DC motors, and an L293D motor driver. The transmitter will act as remote to control the Robot where the robot will move according to the gestures.”
