There have been a number of successful attempts in designing obstacle avoiding robots. These works differ by selection of sensors, path mapping process and the algorithms applied to set the operational parameters. In this paper we present a los cost ultrasonic distance sensor for obstacle avoidance for mobile robot navigation. The system is implemented using microcontroller Arduino Uno, a Wi-Fi module, an Arduino motor shield driver which controls the robot through the geared dc motors. The system showed good performance under various lighting conditions. Experimental results with varied positions of obstacle show the flexibility of the robot to avoid it and have shown a decent performance in our laboratory. The robot is additionally ready to acknowledge victims before it, the sensing element system is extremely low-cost as a result of it solely uses one distance sensing element.
