Web Controlled Robot
Ted Konetski and Brian Davis
Advisors: Dr. Aleksander Malinowski

The drive to create a Web Based Controller resides in its ability to control distant devices from anywhere in the world. The intention of this project is to exploit the Internet technologies to create a Web Based Controller capable of controlling a robot and receiving data from this robot.

Downloading a web page with an embedded Java enhanced interface controls the Web Based Controller. There are four main components that drive this interface. These components include the client computer, server computer, robot, and WebCamTM. The client computer downloads the web page from the server. A client side program begins to run on the machine. The program connects to the server and uses this connection to send commands to the robot and receive data from the robot. The server sends client requests and receives data bound for the client. The Robot connects to the server using a microprocessor. The microprocessor also executes client commands received from the server and sends data from the robot's on-board sensors to the client. The WebCamTM sends real time video to the server. The server then takes this video and sends it to any connected clients. The clients receive the video feed and display the video on the web page.
