Self-controlled robots are those which can direct themselves without any human commands. Even though there are many command controlled robots, there is an increase in demand for the self-controlled robots for the military purposes, which in general called as Unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs). These robots are used to augment the soldier’s capability in an open terrain. In the last few decades, enormous efforts has been made for developing robots for war fields and extensive research is carried out in various parts of the world. This leads to build a selfcontrolled robot called as UGV using PIC microcontroller. PIC microcontroller is thus used because of its low cost and high clock speed. In the self-controlled mode, UGV is maneuvered automatically and it capable of travelling from one point to another point without human navigation commands. It uses GPS, magnetic compass and adjust strategies based on surroundings using path planning and obstacle detection algorithms. The complete set up and working of the self-control mode UGV are described in the paper.
