Using Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 to control the GpPiGo


#1

My son just build the GoPiGo (with my help) and everything works fine, connected to home wifi and controlled with a win 10 desktop.
He wants to take it to school but he has a Android Galaxy Tab 2 and when we try the dex.local it will not connect to the robot.
It is possible to connect both as a stand alone unit? We load the bonjour on the PC, is there something like that for android?

Thank you any help will be much appreciated.

Hey Alex, indeed there is! you can try out our Cinch operating system: this will allow you to tether directly between devices over wifi. You can see a little more here: http://www.dexterindustries.com/raspberry-pi-robot-software/

Scroll down to the section on Cinch and you should be able to connect over wifi (tether).
