Ich glaube der Roboter wird gerade eingeschneid:).Es ist nicht möglich diesen im Schnee vernünftig zu steuern.

Habe schon versucht SOS mithilfe der Scheinwerfer zu blinken doch es kam niemand zur Hilfe :D

Me: Ich werde die Niedertiefenbacher Feuerwehr um Hilfe bei der Bergung bitten müssen ;-)
Mal sehen, ob der Zombie demnächst besser mit dem Schnee umgehen kann.

Snow Driving!!  :)

we need the zombie rover (R8) with more traction!!

thanks!
Doug

Me: Yes, indeed! I already put R7 back inside my attic - the tiny wheels were spinning freely even in light snow.

Hi Norbert,

A great project! You inspired me to build a rover by myself (with your very helpful instructions). I never build one yet. Can you estimate when you're going to release your control software?
Thanks a lot in advance.

Best wishes,
Mac

Me: I am currently recording last sequences of the video about another Rover named "R7". It's based on a RC car costing less than 20,-€ - its hard to get a robot cheaper (but a raspberry Pi + camera module has to be added to the price). Test drives will start this weekend and the software will (hopefully) be released in the week after that. That cheap rover will very likely go out in the world. Stay tuned if you'd like to learn how to become a host for this robot...

This is great! Very inspiring. :)

It may be useful to transmit a real time feed of device state. That way you could know that the rover is still moving, even though you haven't received an updated image yet.

That way an experienced controller could stack up movement commands like "forward 10" "forward right 3" "forward 2" "forward right 2" "forward 10", without having to wait for images each time. A device state readout would require much less data throughput.

Take care, and thanks!
Evan

Me: Thanks for your feedback! That's what I need to improve my robots.
Yes, sending commands stacks (sort of) is what I have implemented in my first rover. It's a more Mars rover experience you get, however my planetary rover should be as simple to control as possible. No need to read long manuals to create rover instruction sets.
During night hours the camera uses long exposure mode (1s and more) which slows down the live stream noticeably. I am working on speeding that up or at least synchronise movement and transmission in a better way.

Hi, it looks great.  what are the learnings so far?  did the color vs. black and white really make a difference?
how about an upgrade?  - proximity sensors.  R6 needs back-up assistance!  :)

Thanks for sharing your rover!
Doug

Me: Hi Doug, thanks for your feedback!
It is indeed saving bandwidth. A black and white picture is only 70% in size of a color picture.
A sensor that is needed and will be added next is a battery watchdog to avoid deep discharge.

Excelent as ever, I try wifi coverange under the car without problem. Thanks you very mutch for the experience

Me: Thanks for your feedback! Under the car is very close to the access point (that is in the garage with the second 2CV). It was a bit worse down the yard this morning, so I placed the WLAN router closer to the garage door.
Tell your friends about my project(s). The more test drivers the better I can fine tune the software.
