Arduino RC car (Android control via Bluetooth)

Arduino RC Car

The first part of the project CxemCAR is here. There are also the source code for Android (Java Eclipse) and other useful information.
In this article, I will describe the assembly CxemCAR for the Arduino. We can use any Arduino-compatible board: UNO, Nano, Mega, Leonardo, and even based on STM32 – Arduino DUE. I used Arduino Nano V3.

Simple RC car for beginners (Android control via Bluetooth)

This is a simple project of Android Bluetooth Car with Bluetooth control. This project is open source and multiplatform: Arduino (Processing), STM32, FEZ Panda II (.NET Micro Framework) and may be even  Raspberry Pi.

To control the car used Android-device with a built-in accelerometer. Tilt forward – car goes forward, tilt to the left – car turns to the left, tilt back – car goes back. Speed of movement or rotation depends on how much you tilt the device. Sensitivity and value of the tilt set in the configuration Android-apps. Also are provided a normal way to control: the buttons on the screen. In addition to all I implemented the touch control. In version 1.2, I added a new type of control: like virtual steering wheel. Total 4 ways to control the RC Car.

Communication between the STM32 and Android via Bluetooth

This article describes the organization of communication via Bluetooth between the microcontroller STM32 (used board STM32 Value Discovery) and any Android-powered device (smartphone, tablet, etc.). As the example shows LED control from the tablet, and sending messages back to Android from STM32 board.

As a Bluetooth module uses cheap Chinese module HC-06, which has been considered in this article.

USB data transfer between Android and Arduino

In previous articles we discussed about control an Arduino from Android device and control an Android device from Arduino.

In this article we will discuss how to do two-way data transfer between Android and Arduino in MicroBridge mode (ADB over USB). We will make a simple circuit using a Ultrasonic Distance Sensor and Piezo Buzzer.
