This could be a record breaking. The above video shows a demo with Andruav to actually control a RC Car from LA in Cairo using Andruav, the distance is 12,193km 7576 miles between the driver in LA & the car in Cairo.

The demo was done in my home, and the car is pretty fast, so a caution was required when controlling it to avoid fast jumps.

 

The configuration is like described in the below image.

LA Configuration

Andruav-GCS running on a tablet, the tablet shares wifi with a laptop that runs mission planner, the mission planner is connected using TCP/IP to Andruav-GCS that acts as a telemetry. A Joystick is connected to Mission Planner for control.


The Tablet itself is running opens FPV screen using Andruav, it display what is captured by the RC Car mobile that is mounted on it.

Cairo Configuration

There were two separate Andruav there.

1- Andruav-GCS on WebClient, this is what we see on the large monitor, it shows Mario Location & it connects to Andruav-Drone “RC Car” same as the GCS in LA and display the very same video that Mario see in LA through Andruav-GCS on tablet. One-to-Many video streaming is one of the nice features in Andruav.

2- Andruav-Drone “RC Car”, the car has an APM board and a bluetooth module. A mobile is mounted on the car an connects to APM via bluetooth. It runs Andruav-Drone.

The other video from Cairo that shows the car on the other side is this one:

At last I want to thank Mr. Mario for his video & support.

Cool project! Did you measure the lag? How much was it? Did you consider using UDP instead of TCP/IP?

In the LA video you will find lag in the first video, while the second is much better. Here in Cairo I used a  slow connection only 512KB for uplink. that is too slow, but it was enough for telemetry & video & facebook video :) 

When I use Mobile connectivity it is much faster, normally video is very good and enough for car driving and slow flight. There is a local version of Andruav that you can use, it will work all over wifi giving best connection possible.
Please have a time to try it yourself in your network and check the quality you will like it :)

UDP is not possible, as you need to reach mobile so u will need a real ip, there should be a server in between. In the video u can see that there a re GCS also on web in Cairo that is many-to-many connection via server not peer-to-peer.
