RK-1 | a wifi Arduino mobile robot for iOS & Android devices


#1

RK-1 is a wifi enabled mobile robot that you control using your iOS or Android tablet or phone that makes your Arduino projects mobile.

I love building and programming mobile robots and because of my love of mobile robots, mobile phones/tablets and the Arduino, I combined them to make a prototype called the “RK-1”.

THE IDEA

The RK-1 is a fun mobile robot, that uses an ad hoc wifi connection, which is controlled using your iOS or Android device.

The control board on the robot is built on the Arduino hardware/software architecture, which is open source, and the controller software and hardware will also be available open source. The idea is to give the community the ability to make Arduino projects mobile. There is no end to what you can do- you can add sensors and actuators to this fun little device and control it remotely.

I have implemented a new and amazing way of controlling the robot using swipe gestures.
