RK-1, A Robot Controlled With Your Smart Phone

By: | June 7th, 2013

The RK-1 is a fun mobile robot, that uses a wifi connection to control the robot using your iOS or Android device.

The control board on the robot is built on the Arduino hardware/software architecture, which is open source, and the controller software and hardware will also be available open source. The idea is to give the community the ability to make Arduino projects mobile. There is no end to what you can do- you can add sensors and actuators to this fun little device and control it remotely.

A new way of controlling the robot has been implemented to control the robot using swipe gestures.
