Motorized WiFi Controlled Chassis

Greg sent this in via Instructables!

A motorized WiFi enabled chassis with 8 6mm by 1 contact
points for a user customized WiFi controlled platform.

Donald Bell of Maker Project Lab (https://makerprojectlab.com) pointed out in his November 29, 2017 update (https://youtu.be/cQzQl97ntpU) that the “Lady Buggy” chassis (https://www.instructables.com/id/Lady-Buggy/) could be used as a generic platform. He must of somehow seen my “projects todo” list…

Motorized WiFi Chassis is a simple WiFi controlled motorized open chassis generic platform that uses an Adafruit Feather Huzzah ESP8266 for communication and control, and two continuous rotation servos plus a lithium ion battery for movement. The chassis contains 8 6mm by 1 threaded mounting points to mount, well, more to come on that.

I’ve included the source code in the form of an Arduino sketch for the Adafruit Feather Huzzah ESP8266 if you wish to modify it. Also, you will need soldering skills and soldering equipment, wire, and all parts listed in the first step, plus an Arduino IDE with appropriate libraries installed in order to complete Motorized WiFi Chassis.

As usual, I probably forgot a file or two or who knows what else, so if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask as I do make mistakes in plenty.

Designed using Autodesk Fusion 360, sliced using Cura 3.1, and printed in PLA on an Ultimaker 2+ Extended and an Ultimaker 3 Extended.
