Turning A Toy Truck Into An Environmental Monitoring Rover


Turning a toy truck into an environmental monitoring rover. via instructables

This is a instructable inspired by the Mars Curiosity Rover , I don’t expect this rover to make it to Mars !! but you mimic it and implement some cool features using the Intel Edison. Having said that ,on mother Earth you can find industrial applications for this, to monitor hazardous condition.

Here are some features implemented using

A modified toy truck, which will act as the rovers chassis
Using a python-flask web app running on Intel Edison to control the Motors on the rover
Using a web cam to stream video to the web app to check the rovers line of sight
Add sensors to monitor the environment variable (click the Sensor button for real time sensor values)
Temparature
Gas sensor
UV sensor
Upload Sensor data to the Intel cloud analytics for future reference, by clicking the PostIoT button in the web app

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
