This study aimed to develop an android-controlled grass cutting robot to address the problems of cutting tall perennial grasses in uneven terrain, test the feasibility of controlling the robot using android devices and to explore the ideas attaching heat and thermal sensor as a safety measure. It was developed using robotic process automation (RPA) utilized the following stages: Gather, Analyze, Design, Execute and Improvise. The grass cutting robot is controlled thru WI-FI by android app which can run in either Windows 10 with “Bluestacks Emulator” or Android operating system version 4.4.2 or higher. It is armed by a grass-cutting blade made of stainless steel and it is propelled by a brushed motor. It also holds the cutting blade and brushed motor into a robotic arm that can be swiveled either automatically or manually. Its heat and thermal sensor located in the front can detect humans, mammals and birds. This sensor stops the cutting blade once detection is triggered. Other safety feature is the ultrasonic sensor which is used to detect objects that will collide into the robot and stops the robot from moving. Its steering angle, forward and reverse speed can be adjusted using the Android app.
