TweetBot: It´s a new way to socialize space science through social networking in order to introduce our community more and more into this exciting new world. it's a guide, a protector, a friend.

This project is solving the Sensor Yourself challenge.


TweetBot it's a navigation system adaptable to any vehicle capable of guide, warn and assist people in space travels. It has a proximity sensor that indicates barriers or obstacles for the user. All the instruction are excecuted by the microcontroller which indicats the robot whether to move , stay, turn left, turn right, or send notifications to a cellphone.

We TweetBot can be used also in Earth for different utilities as:

-Disaster Areas Evaluator -Load Assistant -Visual Handicap People Helper or Guide.

We hope TweetBot will be the partner of Dr. Vinicio Montoya, first guatemalan astronaut, when he travels to space.
