ROVer Robot: An Exciting Solution for Mounting Solar Panels & Android Tablet …and ROVer Completes a 90-degree Turn!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! The suggestion for how to mount the solar panels and ROVer’s Android tablet “brain” is awesome!

I’m still open to further suggestions that either build on this concept or something completely different, but I’m really excited about this solution – it’s not only simple (at least in theory), but it’s so beautiful in its execution and how it leverages ROVer’s existing chassis design.

Also… ROVer completes his first, proportional, 90° turn!

So much work has gone into this and it’s so much fun, and cool, to see all the pieces coming together with driving and servos working together beautifully. There’s still a bunch of stuff to tweak and work out, of course, but I couldn’t be happier with ROVer’s progress 🙂
