WiFi robot

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?

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!

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!
