ABSTRACT: The ‘Service Robots’ is the area which integrates the technology in the interdisciplinary fields like mechanisms, sensors, electronic control systems, and artificial intelligence. We have developed a stair-climbing transporter (a robot) to carry or transport the loads up or down the stair case. The main features of the transporter include the supporting frame, tilt switch to adjust the angle of the platform, and wheels with triangular belt attached. We are developing the mechanism of SCT further by interfacing it with the popular 89V51RD2 microcontroller to make it an autonomous vehicle with decision making abilities.

KEYWORDS: SCT, Tilt Switches, Microcontrollers
