IP controlled bot
So after lurking for awhile I decided to actually contribute something and maybe get some feedback on my latest bot.
At the moment I am mostly finished with the build and will be moving onto the programming. This will just be something simple that will allow me to see what the camera can see and let me move it around the house while I sit at the computer and if possible I might make a simple android app to do the same.
The IP camera and WAP have both been tested together but were only tested with external power supplies. I'm a little apprehensive about hooking them up to to batteries. I think that I have it all figured out and there is not much more I can do to be sure so I should just do it and hope but still.
My only problem so far is that the motors probably won't move the bot as it seems to be quite heavy, the four SLA batteries ended up weighing alot.
Also the camera's fov seems a little limited. It doesn't show if there is anything close that I should avoid so I will have to plan ahead.
In the Additional Information box I put 4 hours as that was the time I spent putting the bot together. The time spent planning and gathering everything together was far, far longer.
Tell me what you think, especially if you see something that I have overlooked as I am already planning something bigger and would like to learn as much as possible before I start building. Thanks
