fonerabot1.pngFrancisco Suvires, a 19 years old Spanish student with a passion for electronics, has just won the first prize at the MadridBot 2008 competition with its project Fonerabot.

Yes, as you can tell from the picture, it’s an incredible wheel-equipped exploration robot built out of a Fonera! This little moving Fonera can obviously be controlled via WiFi and, while exploring around, it can also get and transmit information like the room’s temperature and lighting conditions.

p1050110.JPGFrancisco opened a Fonera, played with its electronics and loaded open source software on its firmware to control the engine and the sensors he installed on it. A web interface allows him to steer his Fonerabot and get continuous updates from the sensors.

Congratulations Francisco!
