WiFi Tank Drone

Introduction

This is more a proof of concept project than a finished project. I’ve always wanted to build a tank drone controlled over WiFi with Video streaming and GPS navigation. So when I discovered the Carambola WiFi board back in 2011 I finally started to actually build it. This prototype has taken me about a week to develop, as such it is still rough around the edges. I wanted to test a few concepts with it to further my knowledge towards the end goal of creating a flying drone.

Unitymedia and your IPv6 Home-Server

Introduction

If you’re like me, you’ll have a home server running some services you want to reach over the Internet when you’re at work (or something like that). Furthermore if you’re like me you’ve changed your ISP to get more bandwidth for your home server. I’ve recently switched to Unitymedia and that was the end of my home-server availability.

Why you may ask? Because Unitymedia only provides IPv6 addresses to their new customers, so effectively, if you’re in the same situation as me, you won’t be able to reach anything on your home network (not even your router) via the routers assigned IPv4 address. But don’t worry, in this post I’ll explain how to solve your problems with accessing your home-server.
