Ok, so my idea is to build a car-like robot that has a camera on it but how can I broadcast a camera signal over the air to somewhere else and have it recieved into a TV?

We did this in school and wrote a program in C++ to control the servos/motors. It's a real fun project.

This reminds me of that one competition to make a fully robotic car (not a radio-controlled one).

Radio-controlling a car doesn't seem that difficult if you know what you're doing.

ONE HUNDRED BILLION DOLLARS!! Sorry couldn't resist.

Anyways, seems very kewl, but do you want to have it remotely controled or do you want it controled by what the camera's seeing?

Making an AI to control the car is extremely complicated, I'm pretty sure he only wants one that's remote controlled.

EDIT:

Ooh, just noticed he said "car-like robot," not "car robot." I thought he wanted to rig up an actual car to run off remote control.

Hehe, not a car off of a remote control...but that would be cool...
And I was talking about just something I would use a remote control for. My teacher in school today made a lot of kids look and stare when they see a little toy robot thing that has an old tank base for it's wheels just going down the hallway with no one around controlling it.
