WiFi Controlled Mobile Robot with Adafruit Internet of Things CC3000

WiFi Controlled Mobile Robot with Adafruit CC3000.

The CC3000 WiFi chip has a wide range of applications, and thanks to breakout boards like the Adafruit CC3000 breakout board, it is very easy to interface this chip with open-source platforms like Arduino.

In this guide, we will focus on one of these applications: robotics. We are going to see how to plug the CC3000 WiFi breakout board on a mobile robot to control it remotely from your computer, or from your smartphone or tablet.

This particular type of control uses a seperate server computer that the robot contacts to get “instructions”, rather than hosting the server locally. If you’d like to check out an example of how to run a lightweight server on the CC3000+Arduino itself check out the WiFi candy bowl project!

The tutorial will start by introducing the different components that you need to build a robot suitable for this tutorial, and how to plug the WiFi chip to your robot. Then, we’ll see how to write the Arduino sketch & the server-side interface. Finally, you will find a short video of the robot in action. Let’s dive in!
