Wireless Controlled Mobile Tank

Robots are the future. Before letting a robot control human, let us see how we can control a robot. We have started with very basic robot which is basically a tank, which is being controlled wirelessly by a keyboard. It’s a embedded program in python that is taking inputs from keyboard and sending signals to motors attached to tank. And the program is running on a small raspberry pi with raspbian os. Rest are connections that have been explained through a diagram in video. ​ We are controlling a DIY Mobile Tank Platform wirelessly using Raspberry Pi, L298n Motor Driver.
