How to control robot using RPI through computer

Mon Apr 08, 2019 6:19 am

Hello mates

I've been learning a lot from you guys.

What I'd like to aim for the project is the connection : Camera - Laptop - RPI - Robot

After data processing at the lap top using Opencv, I'd like the send the coordinates to Robot where to move.

RPI's role is to serve as an intermediary in the middle of receiving signals from the laptop and sending it to the robot.

How can I connect the RPI with Laptop in this project?

Cheers

WiFi seems like the obvious one.

I've used MQTT to send positional information of a robot to/from a laptop with a camera
Once you've got the hang of using MQTT, its easy to use for this sort of thing
