—This paper introduces the design and development
of an autonomous path tracing robotic vehicle that can be
utilized in the management of unstable network. Particularly,
we have developed the path tracing module in terms of the
software and hardware design which realizes the autonomous
path tracing vehicle using the infrared reflective sensors.
Furthermore, the concept of robotic vehicle in order to provide
stable power system in TCP/IP network is presented. In order
to accomplish this goal, this system utilizesa8 bit
microcontroller in order to regulate the DC motor for motion
and direction control and reach the server and supply the
power. The path tracing mechanism is developed by using
photoelectric sensors that receive the path tracing information
and provides it to the microcontroller in real time. The
mechanism of sensors units, role of microcontroller and the
anatomy of our robotic vehicle and its utilization in terms of
network management is discussed.
