On the third week of my summer research project I began to get familiar with the ESP8266 module. The ESP8266 has similar capabilites to other microcontrollers like Arduinos and Raspberry Pis, but this module has bluetooth capabilites which makes the task of controlling a Foldable Boat versatile across devices. The ESP8266 will allow the user to control the Foldable Boat from a Laptop, Tablet, or Phone. This is possible by uploading code using the Arduino IDE to the module. After the code is uploaded, the serial monitor eventually displays an IP address. This IP address can then be copied and pasted into the address bar of the user's web browser. Ultimately the web browser reveals the webpage that will control the Foldable Boat.
