Abstract—Due to their practicality and low cost, unmanned vehicles have gained a lot of popularity recently. In this paper, we present our work on designing and building green unmanned vehicle prototypes powered by batteries that can be charged by photovoltaic cells. Moreover, our prototype vehicles are equipped with Arduino boards connected to different wireless communication devices (3G, WiFi, and Bluetooth) allowing them to be controlled in various ways. They can be controlled by establishing a connection between the Arduino board and the control device, which can be a smart phone or a laptop along with a neuroheadset. The connection can be direct as with the Bluetooth technology or indirect by using a dedicated cloud server. Finally, the vehicles are equipped with a camera that streams video wirelessly to the user.
