Abstract: The purpose of this study is to discuss development of a vacuum cleaner robot using an Arduino with an Android smartphone. Vacuum cleaner robot is designed to make cleaning process become easier rather than by using a manual vacuum. The main idea is primarily by having the sensor to sense any object like wall and dust. Then send the output data to an Arduino that will control the robot vacuum movement. To facilitate targeted functions interactivity in conjunction with high quality sensors play essential roles. In this study, an intelligent interface robotic vacuum cleaner is developed. By using HC-06 Bluetooth module, the user can remotely manipulate its movement with Android smartphone. There are two kinds of function which are an automatic vacuum cleaning mode and manually controlled cleaning modes are developed. An automatic vacuum mode is operated when user can just turn on the robot vacuum to clean without having to monitor the robot. Meanwhile, for the manually controlled cleaning mode operation, the user can control the movement of the robot vacuum by using an Android smartphone through android application. Consequently, a prototype robot has been manufactured and tested in a laboratory.
