    Hi everyone, for FYP I have proposed to make a vacuum cleaner based on IoT with burglar alarm.


    I have decided to use vacuum cleaner in above link (Since our instructor said that we don't need it for heavy cleaning, rather we need it for demonstration).
    Now my idea is that we design a movable chassis and a camera (night vision) on its top. The chassis motion will be controlled using Arduino. We will connect Arduino with internet (on internet with specific domain or server) using WiFi shield. On the other end we will design an android app on which we will receive video from chassis. This android app will also provide control for chassis (i.e I will control chassis movement through app). Apart from that I want the camera to detect any activity in room when set on burglar alarm mode and let the user know on app. Third thing I want is to also make the robot obstacle detecting (to stop when an obstacle appears) so that it might not hit other things by mistake. So what I need to know is:
    1. Is it practically possible to control Arduino using android app as mentioned above?(I personally beleive it is, but want to know any problems that I might face)
    2. Which camera should I use?
    3. Which Arduino should I use so it can perform all these works?
