Buy Your Own Mobile Surveillance Robot
Following the PatrolBot we reported on yesterday, I’ve just seen that Think Geek are also selling a Surveillance Robot the SRV-1. It does look a lot simpler than the PatrolBot but is still pretty cool.
The SRV-1 Mobile Surveillance Robot comes fully assembled but still looks like you made it your self. The instructions say you need a bit of technical knowledge to start the Java application but I can’t see any of our readers having a problem with that.
- Drive robot manually via web browser with live video feed
- Built in proximity sensors can be toggled on or off to assist when driving the robot manually
- Archive video on demand or via schedule
- Control access to robot and video feed via multiple user accounts
- Roving mode allows autonomous exploration with basic vision detection
- Wireless control up to 300 feet from host computer
- Fully open source and programmable
Available for $374.99 at Think Geek.
