Need a spy robot that give your laptop an eye and information about remote environment condition? You also will need to control and get those all data wirelessly. This is a project about that.
The main parts of this robot are:
1. Chassis from remote control car toy (4WD)
2. 2 DC motors for wheel
3. DC motor driver using H-bridge
4. 1 mini stepper motor to rotate camera
5. Stepper motor driver using 2803
6. Controller using ATTiny2313 microcontroller
7. Wireless color camera
8. Transceiver 433 MHz
9. Radio AV Receiver
10. Batery pack 9V
This robot get real time view from wireless camera, and controlled via laptop . The control actions include moving forward, backward, turn left, turn right, rotate camera (cw and ccw) . The distance between robot and control station (laptop) depend on the max distance of tranceiver which is 100 m in this project. The program done in C using CodeVision AVR for microcontroller and Visual Basic for user interface in laptop.
