Remote control cars over the internet (telepresence)
I want to make one of these setups, but I don’t know exactly how to do the codeing.
I got everything external under control. I am going to use the 25 pin printer parallel port. The only problem I have is trying to get a client pc on a webpage to communicate with my computer then to its serial port.
So I need some help with the following...
1. A webpage with buttons to control a program on the host.
2. A program on the host to control a parallel port.
I want a webpage to have 12 buttons, two sets of 6. One to control car 1 and the other for car 2. Each set will have the following keys.
(Or possibly a set of 6 buttons with a drop down menu to select the car to control.)
I can use ubuntu or Windows, doesn’t matter.
So if someone could guide me through the webpage makeing, communication to the host, and the host to the parallel port, I would greatly appreciate it.
Here is a link that you might find useful.
Update: I think the site at the top states that it uses Ubuntu and Apache.
Apache/2.2.9 (Ubuntu) PHP/5.2.6-2ubuntu4.2 with Suhosin-Patch Server at rajesh.homelinux.org Port 80
