I have been tweaking on my Rover 2 build, http://forums.trossenrobotics.com/showthread.php?t=4229, It has seen a couple minor mdifications since I last posted. I will add a few more pictures of it.
My question to you all is, I want to convert the 2.4ghz RC control over to Wifi. This way I will not have two 2.4ghz competing frequencies and one less antenna. In the rover I have 2 IP cameras, a WRT54GL router that has been flashed with DD-WRT, and a battery. I have added a serial port to the router (http://store.curiousinventor.com/spk...smt-parts.html).
The Traxxas RC Truck has a 6 channel controller, single drive motor, dual steering servos, high and low gearbox servo, and two locking differential servos for front and back tires.
My thought was to connect a serial controller to the router and run the RC portion through an interface on a laptop. Do you need a separate motor and servo control? Has anyone tried to do this through a router? Is it even possible? What am I missing in this little modification?
Thanks for any information you may have!
