Autonomous Wifi robot with bridged Router and ip network camra

Hi my Beloved Arduino Programmers,

I have been trying to build a Wifi robot with a router and IP camera on board, raspberry Pi and xbox 360 kinect sensor controlled with joysticks.
I have spend to much time on making the chassi and purchesed motors, tiers, i have comed to a point to throw everything in the wall.
The codeing is more complicated then i thought.
Is there anyone in the Arduino Community that has builded any similar project?
I am asking for the Arduino Code for that build.

Can you describe how you intend the different components to relate to each other and, most especially, what you want the Arduino to do.

If you have an RPi I suggest that you plan for it to do as much of the work as possible and only use the Arduino to control motors or collect data from sensors.

You may get some ideas from planning and implementing a program. The general approach applies to pretty much any project (not just on an Arduino) - break it into small parts that can each be tested and developed separately.

Of course it is, otherwise this planet would already be crawling with autonomous robots.

The DIYDrones forum is a good place to amateurs to start and ask for advice. That is a large group of people who have worked for years on the problem.

I tho about to have one router on the robot that is bridged with the router i have inside for controlling the robot with joysticks from my computer oer WIFI, i also tho about use the raspberry pi like a video server, insteed of buying one, connecting the kinect to the RPi for image recognition, insteed of buying a tiny video server with 2 way audio for 200 euros.
i am thinking if i should buy a Sabertooth Dual motor driver board or should i go with the regular Motor Drive Shield Expansion Board L293D For Arduino Duemilanove Mega UNO.

Is the RPi going to do the calculations about the positioning of the Robot ?

You need to choose your motors first and then choose drivers that are suitable for the motors. The L293 / L298 are very inefficient. If the Sabertooth appears to the Arduino as a pair of servos it will simplify the programming.

I thought about 12V DC 200 RPM or the with the Sabertooth dual 12A motor Drier

and hook those up with the 1/5 Scale Rovan LT305 4WD SC Truck Dirt Wheels

Or the 6V DC 120RPM High Torque Electric Gear Box Motor with The L293 shield.

and hook it up with 1/10 Bergsteiger Off-road

An old router bot project in link below. Fairly simple setup. I was testing controlling the continuous rotation servos thru a web page and my normal wireless router using a wifi connection between my laptop and the router. I just disconnected the router from the cable modem and powered everything with a 12v drill battery. The multimeter picture shows the wireless router using 170ma at 12v.

Man, i Love you Zoomkat.
Thanks

I will update you with picures later when i have build the project.
Your freaking Awsome, Zoomkat my man!
