1.1 Company Profile:

* HCL is a global technology and IT Enterprise company based in Noida, India. The company comprises two publicly listed companies, HCL Technologies and HCL Infosystems. * HCL was focused on addressing the IT hardware market in India for the first two decades of its existence with some activity in the global market. * On termination of the joint venture with HP in 1996, HCL became an enterprise which comprises HCL Technologies (to address the global IT services market) and HCL Infosystems (to address the Indian and APAC IT hardware market). HCL has since then operated as a holding company. * In 1976, [Shiv Nadar, Arjun Malhotra, Subhash Arora, Badam Kishore Kumar, T.V Bharadwaj,& Arun Kumar H] started Microcomp Limited. The focus of the company was design and manufacturing of scientific calculators. The venture provided its founders money to start a company that focused on manufacturing computers. The company name "HCL" used to stand for "Hindustan Computer Limited" but now HCL is the only one name that the company goes by. HCL received support from the Uttar Pradesh government to set up manufacturing in Noida. * In 1981, NIIT was to cater to the increasing demand in computer education. By early 2000s, Nadar divested his stake in this venture. HCL was also ranked as the 29th most trusted brand in India by The Brand Trust Report in 2011. * HCL Infosystems Ltd., a listed subsidiary of HCL, is an India-based hardware and systems integrator with a focus on emerging markets. It has a presence in 170 cities and 505 points of presence reaching 4000 towns throughout India and operations in emerging markets including South Asia, Middle East & Africa. It has a strong distribution network of 93,000 outlets in over 9,000 towns in India. Its manufacturing facilities are based in Chennai, Pondicherry and Uttarakhand. It is headquartered at Noida. * The facilities and assistance with proper guidance given by the HCL helped us achieve a proper completion of our project and an immense amount of knowledge has been acquired by us from working with HCL .


First, let's decide what a 'robot' is. In my opinion, a remote controlled car is not a robot since it has no brain of it's own. It has no way to make a decision on its own. If you want to build a machine that just responds to your remote control, then just use a remote controlled car or other toy. But I don't think you can call it a robot. Even if a robot has an on-board brain, it can still accept instructions from an operator and be called a robot To be a robot, it should have the ability to think - make decisions. This may sound hard at first, but really any small computer can be programmed to make decisions.

This project itself contains a hardware functional units like hardware materials and circuit components like sensors, micro-controllers and software functional units like Graphics programming, serial com port programming. The activities responsible of robot are collects length and width of the geographical area by the movements of robot wheels and send the information’s to the remote end by that our PC can collect the information’s and with the help of graphics programming the system will plot the view of environmental areas and also we can monitor and control the movement of the robot.

This project itself contains lot of applications from Civil, Electrical, Mechanical, Mechatronics, physics, Material science, software and Electronics, Mathematics. The language used for the Graphical and serial port programming is C language and in Robot side, Chip programs are done by Embedded C by that we can implement the embedded systems concepts anywhere in the field of Science applications.
