Robot Rovers

I work on several robot rovers now, most of the time fixing Steelsquid Kiss OS and the PIIO board that i use to control them.
This page contains links to all my robot rovers.
  • Irrbloss 4G Rover
    This is my I have built a new rover, the last one (Squidscout) was to big, no fun working on it...
    This new rover is small and weighs about 11kg with the batteries.
    The base chassis is made from Servocity 6WD Mantis but with larger wheels. And it is reinforced to withstand the weight.
    It is controlled by 4G or WiFi from a new control station.
    So I can drive everywhere where there is 4G coverage.

  • Squidscout
    This is my new project Squidscout.
    It is a 6wd rover with rocker suspension.
    I did not like the skid steering from my last rover so this one can turn the front and rear wheels.

  • FPV Squid Rover
    My new rover with 8 wheels :-)
    It is controlled by my FPV Control Station.

  • FPV Control Station
    Built a new control station for my rover.

  • FPV Rover
    I have rebuild my Large Rover to the FPV Rover.
    It has a 2.4GHz video transmitter and the video can tilt up/down and right/left.
    I also made a remote control to host the screen for the video and the control buttons.


  • NRF24 Rover
    I wanted a rover with longer range (WIFI is to short).
    In this robot the video and control signals is transferred by NRF24L01+.
    The video is very low resolution and frame-rate (320x240, about 1 frame a second).
    And a also build a remote control with a Raspberry Pi 7" Touchscreen Display

  • Mini Rover
    This is my smallest robot 20x20cm and 9cm hight. 
    You can control it via WIFI like the other robots but this also has 8HC-SR04 distance sensors.
