When I started to work on this first prototype I knew absolutely nothing about this field, except for some basic skills of electronics and programming.
I was driven by a strong curiosity and I wanted to get closer to the world of robotics. Someone had mentioned this revolutionary platform called Arduino and I was interested in understanding the capabilities. So I rolled up my sleeves and I tried to build a simple prototype capable of interacting with the environment.

The main goals were to cover the perimeter of an area, identify obstacles and react according to the ambient light.

This is the structure
NINO Alpha Structure
and this is the result

With the Beta version of NINO I focused on remote controls.

I made a Radio Controller to control it remotely without a computer, but I needed to do it also from the Internet. 

I created a very simple Web Server with Arduino UNO, Ethernet Shield and Xbee Shield. Connecting it to the home router and using the free DNS pointing offered by several online services, you can control NINO from any Web Browser, including mobile devices.

NINO Server was just an experiment, with the downlodable software you cannot see live through the Web browser what the robot sees!

Actually this is the most advanced version of NINO Robot and includes all the features of the previus versions.

NINO 1.0_1
NINO 1.0_2

 

 

 

 

 

 

This machine is fully autonomous, it's designed to work inside the house. It is equipped with remote camera, proximity, light, temperature and gas sensors.

**NOTE: In NINO 1.0 Download section you NOT find the software with all the feaures indicated, like temperture and light sensor. I'm still working on it and I'll be ready to publish when all works fine.
