As our school is preparing for the possibility of a “Work from Home” situation, I was wondering, has anyone developed a system to allow people to control a robot via the Internet? Since our robots are controlled via network tables, this could conceivably not be too difficult. We would probably need to use a host machine with two adapters or the radio would need to be in bridged mode. Either way, I am assuming port forwarding would be involved.
I am envisioning a website/tunneled application with a separate interface for watching via a camera not on the robot and driving via a shuffleboard styled page/window.
Obviously, for this to be safe and effective, there would need to be someone in the room with the actual robot with e-stop capabilities, but I feel it could be a neat challenge.
Does anyone have any thoughts about the feasibility of this?
