Arduino Powered Autonomous “Follow Me” Cooler

Hey guys, this is our autonomous “follow me” cooler. It’s basically an Arduino powered robot which follows you by connecting to your smartphone via bluetooth. It navigates by comparing its own location to your phone’s location by streaming GPS coordinates. Here you can see the cooler following me around the park. We built this using an Arduino Uno and some off-the-shelf hardware. It uses a customizable IOT app to interface with the cooler. Let’s say your friend is on the other side of the park, but you don’t want to walk all the way over there. You can give the cooler a set of GPS waypoints so that it can make its way over there without following you. That’s not all It also has a motorized lid. Cheers The cooler is removable so you can also use the base to carry other things. Hope you enjoyed this video. If you want to see how we made it you can check out our two build videos. We also post a detailed set of instructions on It’s a really cool website where you can view our 3d models, our code, and our schematics. We highly recommend that you check it out if you want to find out more about how to build this thing yourself. The links will be posted in the description if you’re interested. As always, if you want to stay up to date with all of our videos make sure to subscribe. But until then, see you next time.
