For our thesis, we need to build a defusing robot which will come in an exhibit.
This exhibit is called “Robotland” and will introduce people to the fascinating world of robots, engineering,…
The only problem we are struggling with at the moment, is the control system. VEX sells remote controls which would be good to use the robot but with our intent, it could create some problems.
If kids come to the stand and use the remote control, it is easy to lose it or take it with themselves. Therefore we want to create a control panel like an old arcade box to place with the stand.
Now here is my question, do you guys recommend something we could use for this, something you used yourself but don’t sell at the website?
Or what would be the best system (Arduino, Raspberry PI,…) to buy and would be the easiest to connect with the VEX interface?
I hope some of you can give me any tips and tricks for this!
