A maker has a created an Arduino-powered RC rover that can be used for backyard exploration.
The 3D-printed frame includes print-in-place tracks, allowing the toy to traverse rough terrain. The vehicle is powered by an Arduino Uno board that controls the two motors with the help of an L298N driver module.
A servo-mounted FPV camera resides on top of the toy, allowing users to look left and right without swinging the body around. The user interface consists of a nano-based remote with communication handled via a pair of nRF21L01 radio transceivers.
In a video by maker MoreMorris, the RC rover is seen traveling over grass and off road terrain in a backyard while the camera records what is being seen and helping with movement. During exploration of the backyard, the maker discovers a lost nerf bullet among the shrubbery.
