Pinoccio’s Web Rover

Here’s a video demonstrating the Pinoccio Web Rover. A mobile phone accelerometer in Brazil is controlling the small robot in Nevada in real time. The Pinoccio is an Arduino compatible Wireless platform. It’s based on the ATMega128rfa1 microcontroller with an 802.15.4 compliant radio built in.

Here’s a short (2 minute) video of us driving the Web Rover, along with a detailed project description
