Mini Wifi Hotspot

Sun Jan 04, 2015 5:35 pm

I was lucky enough to be given a Parrot AR.Drone2.0 for Christmas. I am intrigued by the method of controll and wonder if a similar system could be set up on a Raspberry Pi autonomous vehicle (robot) that I am working on.
The drone acts as a mini wifi hotspot and has an Android app (and iPhone) on my tablet that connects to the hotspot and is used to send controlling signals to the drone and get back live camera pictures. This means that Idon't have to be near a router to communicate.
Would it be possible to set up the same system on the raspberry Pi? If so, how?
Colin.
