This project allows you to drive a robot via a webpage and view a live stream. It can be used to spy on pets, make sure nothing is burning in your oven, and even bird watching!
I began by assembling the 2WD MiniQ chassis kit from DFRobot. I slid the wheels onto the motor shafts, then inserted them into brackets and attached them to the chassis. Finally, I added the metal supports.
Now it was time to build the main board. The L293d motor driver got soldered in place, along with wires running to the Raspberry Pi’s GPIO pins. Next, I soldered a connector for the battery, as that will provide the main power. After the power source was added, I installed a 5V regulator.
