How can I add Wifi to my robot?
April 8, 2008
I'm new to robotics but have dabbled in Microcontrollers the last few years and develop software for a living. One thing I've been dreaming of doing for awhile is builting a blimp robot that is controlled over wifi, but I can't seem to find information on is how to connect microcontrollers to some sort of wifi interface. I'm hoping there's some sort of module somewhere that I can interface with.
Here's the plan:
Build a blimp robot like the blubbler bot (http://store.makezine.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=MKBLIMPKIT) and add a small video camera and wifi module so I can sit at my desk and fly it anywhere in the office I want. I'm aware that weight might be an issue, so it might have to be on a remote controlled car instead.
Any ideas? I keep seeing zipbee modules but nothing for wifi. Am I looking in the wrong places?
