Welcome to the SmartBot Site on GitHub
Smartbot is an open-source Raspberry Pi and Arduino- powered robot that can run around in your house, either controlled by a program or manually. Oh yes, and it's streaming live video footage!
What is "Raspberry Pi" and "Arduino"?
Raspberry Pi and Arduino are two electronic boards developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation and Arduino LLC, respectively. Raspberry Pi (RPi for short) si a whole computer at the size of a credit card! It can control devices such as motors, LEDs and sensors. Arduino is a small micro-controller. Essentially, a great tool for people who want to make simple light and straightforward project.
Can I Make It?
Of course! Raspberry Pi and Arduino are relatively cheap and rest of the components are a few dollars. For a complete tutorial and explanation, visit the Instructable that will be linked in about a week.
How Does It Work?
Well, there are three platforms for this project:
- A Personal Computer. It receives the live footage taken by the Raspberry Pi on-board the robot. It is the one that sends signals to the Raspberry Pi
- In turn, the RPi gets signals from the computer and then processes them using a clever program. This signals are then sent to the...
- Arduino that reads the raw signals from the sensors and sends raw signals to the motors.
