Project Objectives

The purpose of this project is to create a multidisciplinary project, which will incorporate various aspects of computer engineering. This project will include the use of a software user interface communicating with a vehicle using a 802.11b protocol over the internet. The vehicle contains a microprocessor for motor control and wireless communications, and a video sensor to capture images of its environment. The video sensor will capture images at the car's position and post the images on a wireless web server. The application will then open a URL connection to the web server gaining access to the captured images. The movement of the car position would then be controlled from the user interface. The user would effectively be able to "drive" the vehicle and view the updated position seen by the car from the software user interface. This type of project design could be practical applied as a remote home security monitoring system.
