Mini Robot Rover


This is my smallest robot 20x20cm and 9cm hight.
You can control it via WIFI like the other robots but this also has 8 HC-SR04 distance sensors.
The distance will show on the screen (larger red semicircles means the object is closer).

 

Check the video where I drive around the house to find exciting things like cats and dust bunnies :-)

I thought also to use a 4 Channel Infrared Obstacle Avoidance Sensor to detect if a edge is close to the car but that did not work so well. Depending on how reflective the surface was it gave false signals...

Nice job. Mini rover looks solid and your PIIO board is very impressive. 

I'd love to merge both of your rovers to come up with something the size of this but with the looks of your bigger rover :-)
