Sure. It's on my to-do list! :D
There's an update of this robot available:
Hi there. Is your ESP8266 is connected on pins 2 and 3 (using a Software Serial)?
Please notice that in this example the Arduino only reads the commands received on the software serial (line 42). The commands you type and send from the Serial Monitor, will be received by Arduino's regular Serial port, but won't be interpreted as a command for moving the wheels.
Which browser did you use when you used the html interface to send commands? I think it works best with Firefox.
