This is my final projec with my team mate Zhang LI.
A wirelessly controlled food serving robot was designed, programed, and tested in this project. The
food serving robot was designed to work in typical restaurant environments where automatic food
serving is prefered. The basic robot used was the four-wheel differential drive robot. A line follower
and a IR sensor were added to the robot. The robot can be controlled using any Android device with
internet access. The Android app has a friendly user interface and sends commands to the
Beagleboard though wireless internet. Then the Beagleboard sends commands to the Basic ATOM
microcontroller on the four-wheel drive robot through serial port connection. The proposed robot
design was implemented successfully and tested.
