The Madsci “Remote Presence” platform is a Lab research project to explore quick, inexpensive, and easy deploying of remote-controlled interactions.
Servos, motors, actuators, etc are controlled remotely via web browser.
The project is developed with RaspberryPi and uses Spacebrew. We are developing two pieces:
A RaspberryPi based hardware unit, enabling control of 16 servos and 4 AC relays, as well as a web cam.
Communication between the two pieces is enabled by Spacebrew.
All code will be made available very soon …
