How To Build A Large Robot Rover

Free professional robotics projects always come in handy. Therefore, in most cases, it’s useful to think of free robot projects as a playground for your imagination. Whether you are looking for inspiration, professional coding or engineering solutions — in all three cases you can learn a lot, you can apply them, and you can build customized robots upon them without reinventing the wheel all the time.

A large robot rover is hard to design, require more time and, even more, a considerable budget. However, to build a unique robot rover, sometimes it’s not enough to assemble some parts or write some lines of code.

In this article, we present a project designed by Andreas Nilsson.

The Large Rover is a 50x50cm robot with 20cm wheels and controlled using an Internet connection and a webpage. The rover features a Raspberry Pi camera to enjoy real-time video streaming.

Key Pieces:

  • PiBorg Diable DC motor controller
  • Raspberry Pi camera
  • 4 DC motors
  • A servo motor
  • Steelsquid PIIO board
  • Raspberry Pi
  • Wifi adapter
  • Steelsquid Kiss OS
