It’s Alive!

Finally! After over a year off and on, I finally have all the parts and necessary free time available.

Milestone Highlights

  • The basic robot is now working with the two servos to maneuver with
  • The night vision camera is working (at about half the full brightness)
  • Video lag to web UI on a smartphone is less than one second in bright areas, twice as long in dark (due to exposure times delaying transmitting next frame)

Next Up

  • Add in more sensors (highest priority is the proximity sensor for the front)
  • 5″ LCD screen for the top for debugging and status output
  • Integrate the momentary switches with built-in LEDs to perform operations (ex: reset networking, turn on/off IR lights, etc.)
