Arduino and MK802 Robot, Controlled By Phone

  • Seems that the route to novelty and ingenuity these days requires you somehow cable a cell phone into your project.
    Even when your computer-on-stick already has Wifi built in.

  • by Anonymous Coward

    I fail to see how this is even remotely newsworthy. My undergraduate EECS projects were far more advanced than this.

    OK, so this guy has a dumb battery, motors, wheels platform, with no sensors. On this, he put a web server with WiFi, which he then controls from a cell phone. So all that this does is run two small DC motors under manual remote control.

    This is lame even by amateur robotics standards today. There's enough compute power there for a full vision system. Running Apache and node.js is not useful. It might be worthwhile to get familiar with the technology, but you don't publicize it.

      Let me see your finished product and I will judge it for you. Sniping at somebody who might be an amateur roboticist and possibly wrote his first Java script is easy. Putting this into being isn't. Wanker.

        Its Especially Easy, and certainly fair game when that person posts his first juvenile project on Youtube, then the maker of the computer SOC submits it to slashdot claiming its from an ENGINEER.

        Let me see your finished novel and I will judge it for you. Sniping at somebody who might be an amateur writer and possibly wrote his first critique is easy. Making snide remarks on Slashdot isn't.

        Hypocrite.

    • Main thing is that combination of Arduino and MK802 removes the need for the cable as seen in this case: http://youtu.be/jf-cEB3U2UQ#t=11m28s [youtu.be] And yes, by shown example all the computing power for machine vision etc. is now on board. Not to mention node.js javascript and firmata. Your observation about new computing power on board which becomes available is right. Lame? ... I'm sorry to hear that.
  • The narrator's voice totally sounds like the FPS Russian's [youtube.com] voice. Now I want an Arduino controlled 50-cal machine gun with explosive rounds!
  • You can control it randomly too. The robot is controlled by address calls.

    100 is a parameter of speed of DC motor, it could go from 0 to 255.

    Have fun messing around !
