I know that DexterOS configures itself as a self-contained hotspot. I also know that Raspbian for Robots integrates into an existing network.
Is it possible for Raspbian for Robotsto be configured as a self-contained hotspot as well?
I am on a public WiFi network, say one in a hotel or some other venue, and I want to do something with my robot. Assume the robot is headless, has no display, no sound, and exists as the stand-alone device, including remote features like VNC, SSH, etc.
If my robot is headless, (and I can’t fit a monitor, keyboard, mouse, and cables in with my stuff), Is there a way to pre-configure the bot so that I can use it as a stand-alone device with it’s own wifi?
Perhaps a setting?
Suggestion for later implementation:
Perhaps a button connected to two of the GPIO pins can be used to switch modes manually? It would boot as the default mode, (or the last mode selected), and the buttons could be used to switch if necessary. Dex’s eyes could be used for feedback, or the color of Dex’s antenna LED.
What say ye?
