Many of my robots have been tethered to computers and/or power supplies. This constrains their operation somewhat. Because of its low cost (80 U.S. $) and large number of ports (39) I have bought an EZ-Robot EZ-B V4/2 WiFi robot controller to try out.* Due to limited funds (equipment) and lab work space I typically have to disassemble a robot or two before I can build a different one.** The New Years break may give me the time that I need to do that.
* We may still need a tether to a power source for some experiments.
** My blog of 9 Nov. 2018 addresses this issue when only the processor needs to be changed out. Modular robot designs can also help.
