Rover 5 2WD with Explorer PCB ... Which Arduino should I use?

Hi all,

Building my first robot here .

I have narrowed down my search in to these

1.Rover 5 2WD

2.Degu Explorer PCB

Not sure which Arduino board to go with , I have hopes of attaching a IR Compound Eye and a spycam later .

Can I do this with Arduino UNO? or should I go for Spider board?

Apart from that what else should I buy to get me going?

Thanks in advance


Thanks OddBot , appriciate

Sorry , Double post.

Couple of more questions…If

Couple of more questions…

If I leave encorders out for now , can I use UNO with pan tilt michanism and a webcam? also some sort of a router to connect to WIFI and transfer data?

Buying arduino mega is not a problem for me , But I cant find spider board hear in UK. Thats why I’m thinking about UNo to make it easy for me.

Plan is to attach webcam to pan and tilt unit and get pictures of faces(of people)  and transmit it to a server to get processed with a face resognition program. then send back the result to rover 5 and display it in a LCD .

Sorry if it doesn’t make sense , or please advice me if I’m wrong.
