Here’s a fun little project that shows you how to make an web-based robot that can be controlled remotely via the internet. THe main computer is used as web-control system while Make Controller is used to interface the computer to the servo motors attached.
Of course, I do feel that a real PC and the big screen is overkill, but kudos for making such a simple assembly using easy to find software like Skype.
Sparky uses Skype as the foundation for the video chat, as well as some custom software (and source code) we provide for basic wheel-driving servo controls. You can customize this code to add functionality to your robot – including more servos, gripper arms and sensors& You are limited only by your imagination and ingenuity.
