Highlevel block diagram¶
The microcontroller will be conecte via serial to the raspberry pi, on the raspberry we use a Nodejs library in order to expose a real time socket web based server. For handle browser events we use jQuery and keypress in order to detect when a key is pressed then and do a socket emit.
The robot uses the Raspberri pi B+ as the principal board, this board allow the commnincation to a higer level user application using a Sockect TCP server. It is attached direclty to the microcontroller via serial USB port.
The robot has a camera module attached to the raspberry pi, we expose this camera thougth a UDP video stream server.
The robot has one motor per side, each running a tread through a gearbox with an encoder.
The robot has two Ultrasonic sensors......
The robot has a 7.2[V] standard 3000[mAh] NiMH battery.
