|Welcome to Mobile Robotics
There is a lot of fuss about wireless technologies and you easily
get the feeling that all
things connect. And they do! To demonstrate this, we are connecting
a cellphone, a handheld
computer, a Lego Mindstorms robot and a laptop. The possibilities are endless!
In order to move the robot, you connect your cellphone to the
handheld that is attached
to the robot. This device translates the commands beeing sent by
the user - you - to a format
which the Lego computer understands and passes it on to it. Without
you even noticing it!
But we don’t stop there. The robot is armed with a wireless camera, streaming video to
a nearby PC. We may then stream it further to a handheld
PDA, put it on the Internet
and, if we want to, we could even send an image to your cellphone
of what the robot is looking
All things really do connect.
