OTHER WEB ROBOTS
Below is a list of other web controllable machines. Please contact us if you know of any more!
Use the christmas webcams to view live images of 15,000 christmas lights and also CONTROL them - heck, you can even inflate (or deflate) the giant Elmo, Frosty, Santa, and Homer Simpson - D'OH! The webcams are online 7x24 from Thanksgiving to January 1st and you annoy the neighbors by turning stuff on & off from 1700 to 2200 MST (GMT-7). Plus you can send "Instant Messages via Webcam" for everyone to see. HO HO HO! ;-) Also, the Halloween Cams are here in season.
Remotely activate a bubble machine and watch the results via webcam in this south Florida garden. You can watch live streaming video of the back patio of our south Florida home. If nothing is going on, you can liven things up by turning on a 30 second blast of bubbles from our commercial bubble machine. The camera is only active during daylight hours so if you see a black image, don't bother looking for the light. It's simply too dark to see.
From Kennedy Technology in Christchurch, New Zealand. You can control a robotic arm, beetle, and a missile launcher as well as several cameras. At Christmas time, Kennedy also has a very elaborate light display outside his house timed to music on a local radio station!
The goal of our recent robotics project is to allow the user to control soccer playing robots via intuitive interfaces such as the Nintendo Wii stick or over the Internetwebsites. While work and research on this topic is still ongoing, we are happy to present current results.
Control a real robot in Australia from your web browser!
- Watch the robot drive around the lab at University of QLD, Australia.
- The robot will build its own map of the lab (using a technique known as SLAM).
- Tell the robot where to go in its map.
- The robot will drive itself to the place you asked it.
- When the batteries are low, the robot will automatically find its battery charger and recharge itself.
Vcar is a telepresence robot, it uses custom built hardware & software to allow you the vistor to control it with your webbrowser. It's been in operation for Seven years!
There is a selection of vehicles that you can remote control. You will receive audio and video feedback
One of the earliest telerobots on the web, and amazingly still in operation. Invented by Ken Taylor in 1994, developments by Barney Dalton and many other students, ABB Robot Controller for LabVIEW by Andrew Babbage, Concept Design James Trevelyan. New block handling code being developed by Tom Foster.
The Bradford Robotic Telescope is unique. If you want to wonder at the grandeur and beauty of your star sign it will take a colour image for you covering all the stars in your constellation. It will show you the majesty of the sky seen by our grandparents before the age of light pollution.
The Following Telerobots seem to be off-line now
Take control of one of 5 remote-control vehicles (surveyor SRV-1). You can site back and enjoy the ride, or try to unolock the code for extended game play.
You can control 2 Rokenbok vehicles and an autonomous gripper that can retrieve a red ball.
The TU Bergakademie of Freiberg would like to welcome you to the internet webpage of the web-based model railroad. On the following sites you have the possibility to get to know the model railroad developed by the chair of Prof. Dr. Konrad Froitzheim (Chair of Operating Systems and Communication Technologies) of the Institute of Computer Science. We wish you a lot of fun with the operation and discovery.
With Control Our Junk, you have the ability to control the lights in our basement, our trains, an R/C Car, Racecars, and a robotic claw right from your web browser via 2 webcams. Control Our Junk puts you in control of our basement. Java is required to view the webcams, so be patient once you click the control link. Experiment and have fun.
Welcome to the SuperREGIS roving robotic webcam. In brief, through this web page you can drive a semi-autonomous robot around my office and receive images of your progress about every second or so. Note that the robot is completely untethered -- communications from the custom written-web server to the software running on the robot is by radio modem, giving you more or less complete freedom of movement around my office. Note that REGIS is generally only up weekdays from 7am-5pm US Central Standard Time (GMT-6), and must recharge at night. I will also try to have him up on weekends.
Control the Show is a unique Christmas display which allows anyone in the world with a computer connection to log on and control the lights. We are currently live each night from 5pm until midnight until New Year's Day.
