Chemical Technology, Control and Management


The article is devoted to improving the control and algorithm for Autonomous moving systems. The function of the controller is to provide communication between the control computer and the actuator. The ATmega2560 microcontroller is selected as the main processor. The electrical diagram of additional devices of the microcontroller is formed. Printed circuit boards consisting of separate blocks are made on the basis of the electrical circuit. To exchange information with external systems and process the received data, a special algorithm for the microcontroller has been created. The microcontroller is programmed based on this algorithm. The analysis of the functioning of the management system is performed, conclusions and recommendations are given.
