Security and Privacy Concerns Surrounding Spying Rovers: A Research Perspective

Sumana S., Sadashiva Raddy, Nischit M., Sagar H. P., Raghavendra Y.


This paper describes the creation of a flexible spying rover utilizing the electronic stability control (ESP32-CAM) module. The ESP32 microcontroller's strength and the ESP32-CAM camera module's capability are combined by the rover to enable remote monitoring and image capturing. The main objective of this paper is to build an effective and adaptable surveillance rover that can take pictures and send them to a specified Telegram channel or user. Humans operate robotic machines to perform tasks. It is crucial to monitor hazardous situations since they pose a threat to human life and should be avoided. Places like mining sites, urban disasters, closed situations, explosions, etc. need to be continuously watched. The novelty introduced in this work is the spy rover's interaction with Telegram. The rover can create a secure communication channel with a chosen Telegram bot or channel by setting up the ESP32 microcontroller to connect to the Telegram Bot application programming interface (API). When directed, the rover can take pictures and send them right away to the designated Telegram user. This remote picture transmission capability is important when real-time information and surveillance are essential.
