Video introduction to our work on Web-Rover-1 at the International Space Apps Challenge 2013. Web-Rover-1 was one of two projects chosen from the event at the UK Met Office to go forward to the global judging round. This is the 2 minute video to tell the judges about the project.
Lego Rovers engages school children with the challenges of remote space exploration. Web-Rover-1 improves both its user-interface and underlying system architecture. Our mobile-compatible HTML interface mimics a tele-operated planetary rover complete with remote-control, command delays, and the ability to create autonomous rules for the robot. Our simpler, modularised backend code is demonstrated through multiple prototypes which integrate different robots and interfaces into the same system.
