This tank rover by Michael Shimniok streams video to and can be controlled from a web browser. All rover functions are controlled directly by the Raspberry Pi with no additional microcontrollers. It uses our Pololu 30T Track Set, idler wheels, 150:1 Micro Metal Gearmotor MP, DRV8835 Dual Motor Driver Carrier, and Pololu Step-Down Voltage Regulator D15V35F5S3.
