Internet Controlled Robot
« on: June 14, 2007, 08:39:50 AM »
For my next robot project, I am looking to build a remote controlled robot that I can control over the Internet.  The trick is to find tutorials that I can understand given my knowlegebase which is limited to:

1.  Basic Electronics
2.  BASIC Programming (Parallax Stamps and/or PICAXE)

I have a laptop with built-in bluetooth and a wireless router connected to my cable modem.

As you can see, I really don't know much about networking, so I need a good tutorial designed for newbies.  Any ideas where/how to get started?

so these 2 threads describe how i did it last time:

not really the simple tutorials you were looking for i'm afraid.

the fox board has I/O pins and runs a web server.
maybe it will suit your application.
