Abstract: Obstacle avoidance robot have several advantages. These robots can be used to detect and avoid obstacles. In autonomous vehicles obstacle avoidance can perceive their surroundings with the assistance of sensors and cameras to support in navigation systems. Obstacle avoidance can be used in dangerous environments which restricts the presence of human beings. Moreover, drivers suffering from slight disabilities are completely assisted with high automated vehicles to amend their needs. In this research work the autonomous obstacle avoider robot is build using Infrared Sensors (IR). IR sensors can measure and detect infrared radiation in its surroundings. IR sensors have an advantage of operating on low power consumption and applicable for darker condition. Two IR sensors are used one is placed in the right and other left. When the intensity is low in both the sensors, then the robot detects and object and moves backward. If it detects low intensity in the right sensor, the robot moves backwards and then take a right turn and vice versa. If there is no object detected, then the robot moves forward until it detects any obstacle
