The field of Robotics is growing fast in order to make the people’s life efficient and easy. There are various machines or robots designed and manufactured in this particular field to help the handicapped people facing the problems like blindness, broken legs or arms, body part dislocation etc. As, there are limitations in the robotic works, the people are focusing on more accuracy provided by robots. The mind controlled robotic arm (OUM v0.1) is the next step in order to achieve more accuracy. Thus, to overcome the mentioned problem, we are designing and manufacturing a robotic arm in order to make it more useful by the people residing in the mentioned category. OUM (One Universal Mind) is a field created by us and thus we are developing various projects in it. The project OUM v0.1 aims to develop and engineer a Robotic Arm which will be controlled directly by human being’s brainwaves. These brainwaves will be sensed by using EEG (Electroencephalogram) technology. The intelligence in this technology is to build an algorithm which will grasp the current activity of human brain i.e. collecting the information generated by Neurons which are activated by human brain and convert them into plan of actions which will be processed by robot using Digital Signal Processing (DSP) technique. OUM v0.1 robot will then receive the human brainwaves as digital input and will work accordingly. The robot motions and movements of robotic arm will be completely dependent on the brainwaves which human beings will produce. The modules on the robot will be for the robotic arm Actuations by using an android app or by using Gyroscope sensors. These modules will be additional in this project. The methodology of this project is based on the fields of Robotics, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Neural Networks (ANN). There are various sensors which we are going to deploy on the structure of robotic arm for sensing the physical parameters such as room temperature, pressure, light, fire hazards, etc. The project cost will be increased accordingly. OUM v0.1 will be the advanced robot of the generation and it will not be developed on the basis of any particular domain as we are trying to merge the different domains in this single project. Hence, this will be an innovation in the field of above mentioned domains.
