“Lady Buggy” is a Simple Remote Controlled Lady Bug You Navigate with a Touchscreen over WiFi

Here’s a fun project that runs at “just the right speed for the grandkids!” Essentially an ESP8266 receiving commands from a touch-controlled web browser that drives two servo motors (so simple!) the components are outfitted inside a 3D-printed chassis resembling a giant lady bug. Dawwww. You can get the STL files and read more about the project here on Instructables.

A 3D printed wifi controlled vehicle in “lady bug” format.

I designed “Lady Buggy” for my younger grandkids, as such it runs slow enough for them to control without colliding with walls, furniture, and me.

Control is via a touch enabled web browser. Dragging the red button around the web browser display controls “Lady Buggy”. Up is forward, down is reverse, left and right turn. Removing your finger from the display stops “Lady Buggy”.

Uses an Adafruit Feather Huzzah ESP8266 driving two continuous rotation servos for movement.

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.
