This is my poster that already approved by my supervisor:

FYP II Week 12: Combining Circuit and Mechanism

This week i combining all circuit with my mechanism. Picture below show the circuit i use in this project:

Motor drive circuit using transistor

Motor drive circuit usingL293d

Charger and controller circuit

Sensor circuit

Motor drive circuit using relay

FYP II Week 8 - 10: LabVIEW Programming

LabVIEW block diagram

LabVIEW Front Panel

This LabVIEW programming use PID controller, PID controller is a proportional–integral–derivative controller (PID controller) is a generic control loop feedback mechanism (controller) widely used in industrial control systems – a PID is the most commonly used feedback controller. A PID controller calculates an "error" value as the difference between a measured process variable and a desired setpoint. The controller attempts to minimize the error by adjusting the process control inputs.
