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.
