Depending on the router you guys use, you may not even need the ethernet shield. Alot of the linksys routers capable of running linux have serial ports that just need pins soldered on. http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Serial_port_pinouts ...depending on the router board it might not even be real serial level voltage and simple ttl serial may be possibe.Set up a custom web based interface on the DD-WRT access point and then all of your controls could be done through web gui...or some form of control over http and then any actual socket programing can be eliminated (from your coding view point - it still happens under the hood tho =).
i think u could just hook it up to a wireless usb hub and build your robot to plug in to usb
Awesome man! Glad to hear you are running into problems and yet working around em! Thats all the fun!You gotta fry a few circuits in the beginning haha. I'm also building my first robot for school (voice controlled w/ the Axon II microcontroller and the Admin's design). Good luck mate!Mike
Haven't read through all the replies as of yet, but keep in mind that the arduino and the motors will need separate power supplies I've noticed a lot of people tend to over look this, so if you find it's doing "funny things". this will be why.I look forward to seeing how this project progresses
Wow we are in the same boat, i am also building humanoi remotedesktop robot, inially intrnd to use te router on the robot but i foun the limitation, the person control it must from same internet connection, i m nt sure how to increase the distance beyond your wifi zone. So i decided use laptop attach on the robot and i ll use remote desktop to control the control panel.Anyway can show your arduino connection to the 12 v batt. Good luck
Hi i also posted on another one from you. But this is your latest post. Here is a link to a problem i posted earlier. http://www.societyofrobots.com/robotforum/index.php?topic=15732.msg112526#msg112526How did you solve the problem of sending and receiving from the arduino over the wireless router. I have the wireless arduino shield instead of the router. But programming must be the same.Cheers
