Web Control of Robot (RPi / Arduino) - Software Recomendations

Hi;

I am enhancing my Arduino Nano based autonomous collision avoidance robot by adding a Raspberry Pi to stream video to a web page and provide manual control of the robot via buttons on the web page with the video stream.

So far I have installed Apache2 weberver and created a web page using Bootstrap with a button on it, I have successfuly connected the Arduino to the Pi via I2C and using a CGI Python script I can press a button on the web page to turn on an LED.
