RoboDS is an open robotic platform for the DS. It runs a minimal HTTP server and can be remotely controlled via NDS Wi-Fi. It is very simple to construct as it uses 2 or more R/C servo motors. Sensors can be added as needed and connected to DSerial2.
RoboDS Prototype and Video Setup
This step modifies servo motors for continuous rotation. Usually servos rotate to an absolute angle, but we don't want that.
Open each servo and carefully remove the plastic tab shown in the picture below. You will need to remove the ball bearing from the output shaft first. Do not remove plastic tab hastily or the gear might crack.
Also remove the slotted disk under the same gear. That prevents the potentiometer in the servo from rotating with the output shaft.

Attaching Battery Holder
Use the double-sided sticky pad to attach the battery holder. Make sure that it doesn't interfere with the caster wheel. The bond is very strong, so position it carefully!
Use velcro to attach the DS. Loopy side is recommended for DS.
Download the dserial-1.1-robods.zip below and put robods.nds onto your memory card. It will use WFC settings to connect. Once it connects, open the IP in your browser to control the robot.
