I just wanted to thank all of the folks here who have helped me build my cell phone controlled robot over the last couple of months. I am a complete hardware noob and it would have been difficult to do this without this board.
I built it based on the Robot Kit and the WiFly wireless board. I managed to jam into the device a fully function web server + plus a pretty extensive HTTP API to control the robot.
The work is not over, as I have many ideas for the robot, but it’s pretty much all software from here on out.
Here is the video of the device working.
Here is my wishlist for the new version of the RobotKit (if one is coming):
Build it based on the EMX (or better) board. I want to be able to do video processing on it and need a lot more memory. E.g. my eventual goal is to build an open source tele-presence robot.
Offer a motor that can do turning on its own (rather than tank-style turning).
More powerful motor with more precise controls.
Thanks for all the hard work.
