Controlling a robot over the internet

(1/5) > >>

For controlling my robot over the internet I thought about having a laptop with the visual basic program to directly control the robot. Then a second computer with remote assistance turned on can control the laptop remotely over the internet. The program on the laptop controls the robot directly through the USB port. I want to be able to run that program on the laptop form anywhere in the world. Is this possible to do? Is there an easier way to do this?

There are ethernet cards and wi-fi cards that can interface directly to a microcontroller, and are smaller and cheaper than a laptop.

hi airman00 ,
the method you are describing would work but there are far prettier solutions.
look at my post here http://www.societyofrobots.com/robotforum/index.php?topic=538.0 to see how i did this.


Yes, but I want my robot to have a touchscreen and internet connection. Sorry I forgot to add the part of the screen. plus I will be using a USB webcam and other USB devices. i just wanted to know if my idea about using Remote Assistance was possible. The laptop would be the easiest to do to have a big screen and touchscreen( Just put a touchscreen overlay on the screen)

Here is the link to a touchscreen that converts your monitor into a touchscreen
