Step 5: Step 5: connect everything to the router!

Picture of Step 5: connect everything to the router!
Configure your router to have the base Ip Address of 192.168.1.1. The stock Ip Address for the barracuda is 192.168.1.10. The IP can be changed to whatever you want it to be with the configuration program that comes with it. Connect the camera and the Barracuda wifi robot controller to the router using the two Ethernet cables. Configure the camera to have an ip that works with that of the router and barracuda.

Step 6: Power up and go!

The barracuda wifi robot controller comes with a sample program and source code to drive the car. Power the car up,connect to your camera in the browser, run the sample program for the barracuda and start driving! The barracuda also supports use of a PS3 controller plugged into your computer to control it.

Is it possible to control the car with a usb device, like a joystick or steering wheel? Or would that require a different program tailored to that application?

This is pretty awesome. I've wanted to build my own rover since Spirit and Opportunity came online. Roaming the streets, hopping from unsecured wifi AP to unsecured wifi AP, controlled (or commanded) by me on the laptop at home. hehe
