Spinel Crux – Advanced Gesture Controlled Robot Using Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Shared by Jithin Sanal on Hackster.io:

Welcome to our new series – Spinel Crux – Gesture Controlled Robot for Wireless Surveillance. In this series, we will build a robot which can travel through rough terrain and can be controlled using hand gestures. To control the robot, we will be using gloves that will have an accelerometer and a flex sensor to control the status and the direction it should move. The flex sensor activates the robot and the tilt of the accelerator dictates the direction it should move.Below is a teaser video of Spinel Crux.

How Does the Robot Work?
We use Raspberry Pi and Arduino to create our gesture controlled robot. Arduino helps control the glove, which will detect the hand gestures and send the data to the Robot via WiFi.We use a Raspberry Pi to make the robot, which will receive the data sent from the Arduino, process the information, and control the bot.Tutorial on building the gesture controlled robot will be uploaded to our YouTube channel as well as our website, so make sure you SUBSCRIBE to this channel by clicking this subscribe button below for future videos.

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.
