How interesting would be to have a robot which can roam around in your house and you can control its movement sitting in the bedroom. What would make it more exciting would be the geographical detail of the area and a good resolution video and image. Sounds like a high tech NASA rover, doesn’t it? It definitely does!! The best part with this rover idea is that it can be designed on a open source hardware platform using those languages and source codes which curious brain can understand.
Designed on Beagleboard by Andrey Nechypurenko, a research robot making cum open source hardware lover, this robot project has been listed on GIT too. Unusual case with this project is that there is enough scope to imagine a chassis. One can give it a look of a small monster car or even a bare circuit bot would do. Curious minds can also attach a separate servo motor circuit to move the camera around or get the bot do a little Optimus Prime-y thing.
Giving sufficient tech savvy look to the hardware, the software of the circuit is also enough encompassed in this circuit. The images below show how one can DIY it.
