* Spy Robot
As a first intend to create robots for the Home Automation, a Spy Robot was built, using a Raspberry device.
This Robot can be controlled remotely, via Internet and wifi, with a smartphone or a tablet with android operating system.
It is inspired in this link: WebIOPI in the MagPI. The difference is that to control the robot an Android application is used instead of Python and HTML scripts.
This project uses WebIOPi, a REST framework which allows you to control Raspberry Pi’s GPIO.
List of materials and budget:
The total budget is: $ 111.72
It has two sources of energy: a 7.4V battery for motors and a 5V battery for the Raspberry.
To control this spy robot it has been built an android application, which has a screen that allows to remotely via Internet control the spy robot: watch the web camera installed on the robot, take photos, and move the robot (righ, left, up, down, and stop). The photos are stored in the android device.
