Browser Controlled Raspberry Pi Gas Leak Detection Robot

If you’re interested in learning more about how to detect gas leaks or want to build your own Raspberry Pi powered gas leak detection robot, you might be interested in a new project posted on the Hackster.io website by Ivan Arakistein. The robot can be controlled from a browser and is equipped with a Seeed Studio Seeed XIAO BLE nRF52840 Sense card, combined with a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B mini PC and a DFRobot (MQ8) gravity analog hydrogen sensor for Arduino.

The project has been classified as an advanced build and should take about five hours to complete. If you are interested in getting started, please be happy to know that the full instructions have been provided and posted on the Hackster.io website and are available at the link below.

Gas Leak Detection Robot

“Green hydrogen is an alternative energy that reduces emissions and takes care of our planet. However, it is still in its early stages and safety is a major concern as hydrogen leakage must be avoided by all means. In order to provide early detection of gas leaks, we wanted to build a large remotecontrolled robot (on a small budget) to carry the necessary equipment.”

“It needs to take advantage of cellular connectivity and builtin artificial intelligence to detect air quality anomalies along the way. But the robotics components are expensive, a 36V LiPo battery, powerful BLDC motors, and a controller board can push the bill up to several hundred dollars. Hope there is a cheaper way! This is using a hoverboard that already has all the components we need and modifying the firmware running on its motherboard with our own code. This is what we did. Please keep reading.”
