Our project consists of two remotely operated mobile robots. They develop entertainment value for potential users by allowing them to manoeuver the robots, aim, and fire a dart turret at one another's robots.
The user interface consists of a browser windows with a fullscreen video feed from the robot being controlled (Android + TokBox) and keybindings that and keybindings that send post requests to a server near the robots. The server then parses these requests, calls UNIX shell scripts to send commands to an M2 microcontroller over a serial connection. The M2 microcontroller serves as a RF transmitter that then sends the appropriate commands to the robots' M2 microcontrollers. These M2 microcontrollers then control the robots' turrets and motion.
A swarm robotics system, with one mothership and six child bots that can be deployed and recalled. Each child bot is equipped with a gatling gun and controlled by an M2 MAEVARM microcontroller. The mothership relies on an M2, a Raspberry Pi, a speaker (for fun), wifi, and a web server that receive controls over the web.
This entire system is programmed to be controlled by a wearable Leap Motion motion controller that is attached to an x86 Windows 8 tablet. Commands can also be sent to the robots through a general web URL command line.
Currently, the parts of the system that work can be used as a wearable music control system.
