So my life as an undergraduate student at Lincoln University is slowly drawing to an end, while I am still in Lincoln I have been spending some spare time working a little robotic project for some fun with Jonathon Woodliffe.

The project has been to connect a Raspberry PI to a Roomba, we decided we would stream a camera to the internet and pull data from twitter to control the robot through certain commands. Thus far we have managed to stream the camera to a remote website and control the Roomba, as well as pull data from twitter once we tie it all together it should be a neat little project.

Our next steps are to build webpage so users can view the stream and to connect twitter data to the Roomba and then we’ll see what else we can do with it.
