Project Description

We designed a radio-controlled vehicle that uses an “active” suspension system, which detects liquid spills (e.g. Water, oil, etc.) in a transport container we created using a simple water sensor. The system is based on a 4-wheel/DC-motor chassis with many supplement components such as: two servos, an accelerometer, a water sensor, a passive suspension system (which entails a spring or rubber band) we designed ourselves, and an Arduino Mega 2560 micro-controller. We adding a platform on top of the chassis of the vehicle and stabilize it in order to be able to transport materials, by stabilizing the add platform we were able to protect the transport container from small vibrations from effecting the effectiveness of the transport of any material placed on the platform.
