ViVi is a Robot developed by DOIT, in Shenzhen, China. ESP8266 is utilized as MCU for ViVi. We developed a Mesh network library for this robot, so several robots can construct a Mesh network automatically when they power up. Messages or commands can be broadcast to each robot in this Mesh network. What's more, you can send messages (commands) to one or more specified robot(s) in the Mesh. We use phone (Android and iPhone/iPad are both support) as controller. You can control all the robots in the Mesh at the same time by sending commands from ViVi App on your phone.
Each robot plays as a node in the Mesh. When new robot power up, he will join the Mesh he found automatically as a new node, and then
he can receive message from other node in the Mesh.
