A friend of mine (Tom) wanted to drive the car over the net, thought I’d give it a go as I haven’t even tried it yet. I’ve basically opened up my network so Tom has direct access to the car from a few URL’s, when he clicks on the URL’s I’m just messaging him telling him where which way the car’s going. The video’s below.
It’s 1:47 in the morning, my eyes hurt and I’ve voluntarily been at it all day messing around with this WiShield… I can tell you that it’s finally paid off! I’ve managed to get the WiShield to give an XML response based on a URL passed to it… Basically creating a REST webservice on the WiShield/Arduino which will control the servo’s on the car over Wi-Fi from… you guessed it ANY application that can open a URL! I’ll post how I did it in the cook book in the morning when I’m awake!
