In this chapter, we will create and learn how to control, via an Android application, a simple mobile robot. The mobile robot will be able to move in all directions and give feedback to the Android device or the computer with which it will be connected.
Almost all the robots follow the same principal. As a result, if you understand how a robot works, you can easily adjust your robot to anything you want: Create another one, develop the old one, and build an entire world with robots. In this chapter, we will cover all the necessary fundamentals for building your first wireless robot with Raspberry Pi Zero W. To conclude, we will go through the following topics:
- Fundamentals of robotics
- Hardware overview
- Programming the controller
- Future ideas
