Electrical & Computer Engineering Capstone 2012 NORTHEASTERN
We have Glen Chiacchieri and ‘seven other computer and electrical
engineers’ to thank for designing and building the robot. Except for its
treads, all of the robot’s parts were custom made from aluminum. It’s
quite tough; as you’ll see in the video below it can even ferry an adult
human. But adult men can’t connect you to Facebook and Twitter, so
Chiacchieri and company installed a router on it instead, along with a
webcam, a GPS module and two routers converted to repeaters. The robot can be controlled on the very network that it deploys, using a web interface that Chiacchieri coded.

Senior capstone project: Wifi repeater deploying tread robot
Project was constructed at Artisan's Asylum located in Somerville, MA
are links that will answer any questions about the robot. A lot of our
sweat and blood went into making this project possible. Thank you for
watching the video :)!!
