WebWrover (Alpha) by Keith Daniel & Donald Dolan

The Alpha is a test bed for the Beta version, now in development. The chassis will be the same used here, but battery capacity will increase to 12V 5A/hours from 8V 1.4A/hours. The video return modulator is being replaced, and we will be using colour instead of B/W. Audio return is also being added. For better control, a software phase locked loop using motor tach information is being developed.

The goal is to experiment with telepresence on the Web. Early experiments with CU-SeeMe are encouraging, but point out bandwidth problems.

These are a collaboration between myself Keith Daniel VE2KXD (ensign@infobahnos.com) and Donald Dolan VA3DIG (ddolan@inforamp.net).
