Inspiration

We wanted to combine all of our skills between hardware and software engineering.

What it does

It's a web app where people collaborate to guide a robot home, while giving a live feed to its audience.

How we built it

We used a raspberry pi for its wifi capabilities and GPIO/PWM outputs. We also used an H-bridge, wheeled robot chassis and motors to build the enclosure. In addition, we used a camera to give the audience a live feed of where the robot is heading.

Challenges we ran into

  • Learning ReactJS
  • Internet issues (WPA Enterprise on RPI)
  • Fighting with CSS
  • Buggy motor controller

Accomplishments that we're proud of

-Learned a lot! -Finished a product!

What we learned

-ReactJS -NodeJS -Python

What's next for HelpMeGetHome.live

-Desert!!! -Solar panel on top!!! -Cellular module!!!
