Autonomous Telepresence Security Rover


Autonomous Security Rover

             by Arthur Gabanyi

The Rover will be able to navigate through a known environment, with the main purpose to make sure that no one is on the premises. In case of a security breach (witch the Rover will be able to detect via the two PIR sensors) it will send a text notification to the cell phone of the owner. The Rover can also be controlled over the Web or with a Remote Control Unit (Case with a 10" screen). The Remote will get a separate post since it is quite complicated.

When I got the time (in a few days) I will describe my Project in more detail.

In case you are interested, there is a lot of Information in the Video.

There will be many videos to follow. :)

Where did you get that lcd? and how much power is needed. Btw I really like your robot so far. 

I got the LCD from Adafruit.

In case you haven't heard of them jet, I highly recommend that you check them out they have really awesome stuff!

I chose the negativ LCD because I think that it looks nicer, but you might want to consider the positive one since it is brighter (not because the backlight is better, it is just the way the LCD works.)
(A negative LCD is just the opposite of a positive one, instead of a light background and dark charaters it has a dark background and light charakters.)

Might aswell want consider to buy an LCD backpack, it allows you to controll the LCD over i2c or SPI, which safes you a lot of pins.
You would still need 3 extra pins since it has an RGB backlight.

Thanks, I like your robots too, I noticed that you used the Lynxmotion Chasis as well.
And the Pioneer D3-PX looks very interresting. (I have come across that model before, I think I even saw it onces in person in an musem in Munich)

What did you add since your latest update? I'm excited to see this machine come together, this is going to be some loaded platform!

I am very much inspired with this project. please post more videos on connecting the components and programming codes.
