Create unlimited possibilities of robot types that allow internet to control and interact with environment around it via website Robots utilize Raspberry Pi 3 as main processor. From there motor / servo controls are added. Camera, microphone and speakers to allow users to see, speak, and listen to the world around the robot.

Creating robots that allow user to interact and experience places they normally would not be able to go. This could be someone confined to bed or someone just wanting to experience different cultures. setup the website and software that users can put onto their robots to allow users with internet access to control them.

RoboTruck has the chassis of a Venom Creeper 4wd RC truck. It uses a Raspberry Pi 3 B with Adafruit 16 ch PWM hat to control the steering and throttle. It uses Espeak to allow TTS from internet users. Using the webcame and microphone users can interact and navigate the environment around them. RoboTruck was designed to be taken outdoors. This will allow users to visit parks, hiking, and other outdoor adventures. It is powered with a power bank with 2 usb ports and 3S lipo battery.

Blueberry is still a work in progress. It will have continuous rotation servos for wheel control. A gripper for further user interaction. Chassis is 3D printed with hand made aluminum parts.

    Camera mount did not work out well.  3D printed a tilt mount for Blueberry.  Now users can tilt camera to see gripper.   Blueberry successfully went on an adventure out in public.  Users got to interact with people at Walmart.
