The iBoardbot is a robot based on an Arduino board (atmega32u4) with a wifi module with the ability to connect to cloud services. When you write a text in the app or draw with your fingers, this information is sent to the servers (in the CLOUD) then, is processed (vectorization) and splitted into smaller packets of data that are sent to the iBoardbot in order to draw your message in almost real time.
There is a queue of pending tasks for every single robot in the server. The iBoardbot robot handles this queue, so you don´t need to wait to send new tasks!
This is a 2D drawing robot with a simple design and a great accuracy. It uses stepper motors, bearings and timing belts as its mechanical structure.
This “display robot” has an integrated eraser in the drawing header so you can wipe the board automatically and continuously send as many messages or graphics as you want!
The Software/Code: We will provide an open API, so developers can easily make the most of it to generate powerful applications (a weather forecast display, wall info from your social networks, games…)
The iBoardbot firmware is open source and the server protocol isopen as well, so you can hack it to your needs or set up your own cloud services. Furthermore, we will provide (as we do with all our projects in JJRobots) “how it works” and technical documents so people can learn robotics with this project while having fun!
The iBoardbot robot shares almost all of its parts and 100% of its electronics with the B-robot EVO, the fastest -remotely controlled- Self Balancing robot. Create your own B-robot after assembling the iBoardbot!
