Title: WiFi robot
Post by: Andre on April 06, 2008, 14:15:11 PM
This would be a great idea!

Small robots have always the lack of computer power. What if the robot would send all data to a server, the server would do all the calculations needed and then send the robot back the answers?

This could be really easy be done using WiFi but... but... You guess my question...
How can this be done?

Are you preparing a humanoid? And you need such a computer power?

Why not use some RF transievers?

It would be much more expensive and much more energy consuming to have a couple of modules for wifi. Of course you can use some dalas/maxim chips to do it but i aint have a clue how this can be done and i know it is really hard.

Use RF, quick,easy,cheap and not energy consuming...

GREAT IDEA!

Andre will you make a robot like that? It will be great!

Actually, there are some ready made chips to transmit and receive digital data via RF, very reliable and not at all expensive!

Any idea for RF chips? For Digi Data transmission?

I will get ALL of them and try them out. They are so cheap i do not even think about it!

Get an old P3 (486, 386, XT, AT, all would work fine), run some assembly or qbasic, c++, anything. An old rusted motherboard, a 3,2Gb HDD (or even 100-200Megabytes from the ancient times) and behold! Your clever robot with no need of radio intercom. You only need to solve the

ENERGIE PROBLEM

 :-\

sorry badi idea  :-[

No it is not. With a car 80Ah battery it can run for many many time!

Yes, that's great!

But this leaves the imagination free...  ;)

That's the main idea of this site. IMAGINATION

I was surfing the ebay when i came across some really really great gadgets. Micro transeivers, 300mt open field, 100 mt indoors transmision, RF 3 bands with encoded signal ready for use, antenna not included  ;)

And i think it costed less than 10 dollars each. It is ready mounted on a small PCB. Check sureelectronics

I know what you have seen, i think  ;D

It has 4 pins, power, data and antenna. Is that so?

This is great but i have not found any documentation for this.   >:(

Post by: Mercury on August 21, 2008, 20:32:27 PM
Well actually, sorry for my previous post. It was not sureelectronics. Sorry.

I searched again and cannot find the same as i did before. But i found a lot others. Actually, it has become very common. And there is not an actuall need to use the chip itself instead a ready PCB transiever.  ;)

Hello then show you a robot which is controlled by visual basic
through a wifi network with WINSOC.

The project is a Visual Basic 6.0 application I can connect the
Arduino wifi module to a home wireless network, I can control with visual
my robot to see what else I can catch the robot sensors, in
this case an accelerometer but you can view data
sharp sensors.
The interface is very simple to have an EditText IP address, a
for the port and the switching on and off button.
Tex in the edit that says "Put Mouse Pointer Here" puts the pointer
mouse and arrow keys can now control your robot if
want self, there is a corresponding button for this and the other for
return it to the control mode.

Hope you like it


Thanks.   :)  :)  :)
