I have build a robot with a head actually made of an iPod (with iOS 6). I would like to take control of the camera remotely so I can control the robot from afar.

The program I need is very much like Skype, but I need to automatically activate the call as the robot is unattended.

  • The camera should not be activated all the time.
  • Unlike most camera programs, it has to be like a Skype call (video and sound both ways).

Skype allows you to do that but only on desktop version!

I have searched for such a program/functionality and didn't find anything. I am actually thinking of adding one servomotor to answer the calls on the screen... ridiculous.

Ideally this program should work on my iPod with iOS 6 but a solution on iOS 8 or even Android interests me as well as a backup solution.

Any idea?

So I found another program that does almost everything and that is "usable" in my case, as Skype is not.

Babyphone 3g

Pros:

  1. It has the auto answer feature.
  2. The camera can be turned off when not used.
  3. If the connection is bad, it offers to take pictures.

Cons:

  1. Video is only one way (big down) but sound can be both ways.
  2. The "babything" design which makes it look unapropriate for me when it is the best I found.
  3. Not free (and probably pay for each separate device you want to connect, have to check that)

I am not sure I should answer my question or edit my question in that case...
