Have you ever wanted to drive a robot over the internet?

We are doing just that, we have the Network Camera, and router. Have you guys ever done anything like this before? If so I would love to get some help! Thank You! (on the programming part not building, we already have the robot built)

Re: Have you ever wanted to drive a robot over the internet?

Wow, thats amazing. Not to mention a good idea!

Though our team has never done anything quite to this extent, I could foresee a few relatively simple ways to go about doing it.
I would be interested to know exactly what kind of robot you're talking about controlling though. Got any pictures? they would be useful to anyone trying to give advice.


I think I might just play around with a concept like this now in my free time.

Re: Have you ever wanted to drive a robot over the internet?

CD User ChrisSanborn had a very similar idea a while back. Although it appears to be down now, it worked excellently at the time, and he'd probably be the go-to guy for some suggestions/pointers.

You could try a PINK module.

Re: Have you ever wanted to drive a robot over the internet?

Microchip has a ethernet interface chip (ENC28J60). It'll do you right, but it'll take a bit of gumption to get it working.

Use the Pictail so you don't have to spin a custom board.

Alternatively, put a gumstix in there. It'll put you back a little bit more in terms of $$, AND you'll have to learn a new environment. However, it also has a bit more kick to it.

Good luck, and let us know how it turns out!

Re: Have you ever wanted to drive a robot over the internet?

I'm glad to see someone did this. Reading peoples comments about how fun it is, tells me it could be a big deal.
