Today we are going to introduce RK-1, a wifi enabled mobile robot that you can control it with your iOS or Android tablet or phone, presented by Evangelos Georgiou who wanted to offer an open-source platform for helping Arduino hobbyists take their projects mobile.
This remote controlled robot called the RK-1 that combines a programmable Arduino microcontroller with apps for iPhone or Android, tank tracks, DC motors and Wi-Fi connectivity.
The control board on the robot is built on the Arduino hardware/software architecture, which is open source, and the controller software and hardware will also be available open source.
Also you can add sensors and actuators to this robot and control it remotely. And Georgiou have implemented a new way of controlling the robot using swipe gestures.
