I am a 24 year old ICT student living in the Netherlands. I try to combine my knowledge of computers with my love for building with Lego Technic bricks. I use this website to share my projects with the world. Hopefully you will enjoy reading here.
Hello Bas! I have been looking at your projects and I am particularly impressed with the Wifly robot. It is amazing how you got such a complex mechanism with vastly different parts to come together so well. I would never have thought to go with the simple, yet effective, lego sensors. I am currently working on a controls system for a teleoperated robot for a school team/project but am new to Arduino as a whole and particularly the Wifly so I was hoping you could give me some advice? I have the device connected to my WAN but have been unable to find any tutorials/instruction on how to activate individual pins. I would really appreciate it if you were willing to give me some advice, hope to hear from you.
Hi Yusif. Have you taken a look at the diagrams and source codes on the WiFi Camera Robot project page? It should be sufficient to recreate the project. You could also take a look at this instructable: http://www.instructables.com/id/Twitter-Mood-Light-The-Worlds-Mood-in-a-Box/
The WiFly manual may be usefull as well: http://www.sparkfun.com/datasheets/Wireless/WiFi/WiFlyGSX-um2.pdf
Great work. I am actually working on a similar project to your wifi robot with the camera and am interested in the approach you took with the web page based controls. I was hoping to take a look at your source code but the links appear to not work. Would you consider reposting them somewhere.
Thanks Lonny. I have added the source codes to a zip file on the project page, so now you should be able to download them. Good luck with your project and please keep me informed with your progress!
