WiFi Arduino Robot

Autonomous roving via IR sensor, manual joystick control via Wifi

My first attempt at using an Arduino WiShield for wifi connectivity. This robot can move with a USB joystick connected to a PC as well as autonomous roving using his IR sensor. I made this to test the functionality of the WiShield and fell in love with it! It's a great product and being able to use the simple Arduino IDE to get wifi connection to a robot is amazing.

Cool stuff!

I love this robot!  It is such a simple and elegant design, but it has a lot of functionality and potential.  I am working on an Arduino robot right now that is loosely based on this design.  It will have an autonomous exploration mode and a manual mode where I hope to control it wirelessly via a wii nunchuck.
