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)
Upload Sensor data to the Intel cloud analytics for future reference, by clicking the PostIoT button in the web app
