Abstract- This project is an attempt to design and build a Chess playing Robot. The specially designed sensor based chessboard detects your moves automatically and thereafter a PC controlled robot will play against you. It gives you a feeling that a real opponent is playing against you and this has several advantages. ChessBot is very much simpler; it is not athletic but has lots of brain to make you sweat. ChessBot can play special moves like Castling, En passant etc. and can detect wrong moves. Keyword- Chess, Robots, DOF, Magnetic Sensors, Stepper Motor
