If you’ve ever thought about getting into autonomous robots connected to the Internet, here’s a chance to learn how to build a robot rover with Internet over GPRS connection, GPS and distance sensors.
In this video, Jorge Crespo shares some features about the autonomous and manual mode of the robot. Here are some details:
- Autonomous mode: in this mode, the robot uses the distance sensors to detect and avoid obstacles;
- Manual mode: using an IoT application, the user sends specific commands to the robot;
The GPS module attached to the robot sends position data to the server so you can check the robot location and route on the map.
The brain of the robot is an Arduino Mega. The code and other resources are on GitHub.
