Boobot Robot

Arduino and PI Robot

Arduino Raspberry PI Flask

BooBot is a simple remote controlled robot with basic sensory avoidance capabilities. Despite being rather ugly it's named after the world's cutest dog, Boo. BooBot is made from inexpensive parts and generally handles pretty poorly. However, it has been valuable to play with Platform IO, OpenCV and other IoT concepts. Control is handled in the following chain: Web server > Raspberry Pi > Serial connection to Arduino > Performs basic commands with avoidance.
