Introduction: ROVERBOT

** This Instructable is under construction **

UPDATE: Roverbot electronics have been moved from a breadboard to a protoboard.  Battery has been mounted above the rear axle for better pick-up and turning ability.  Roverbot web interface queue has been added along with an admin page for absolute control over the bot during public showings.

Roverbot is a wireless web-enabled RC vehicle made from Truckbot parts.
