This is really a sub-project of the Mini-Mapper project, but I’ve given it its own page because it looks as though it’s going to take a bit of work!

The idea here is to make a communications module to allow the Mini-Mapper robot to communicate to a PC, using a 434 MHz radio link. I want to build some electronics and implement more or less a whole (simple!) network stack. The end goal is to have something that the Mini-Mapper can talk to over a UART using a simple protocol, and that, from the PC end, looks like just another Linux network interface.

So far, there are a couple of videos from the Mini-Mapper series, but there should be more here soon.
