Android controlled RC Vehicle with real-time video (Bluetooth & Wi-Fi)

CxemCar2

On the Internet there are many articles on the use of RC cars with IP or Web-based camera. But most of them used a laptop or an internal router with Open-WRT or DD-WRT firmware. View the video and control of the RC car in such projects usually implemented with a PC or Laptop. In this article describes the control crawler platform from any Android-device (tablet, smart phone, etc.), as well as viewing real-time video and rotation control pan/tilt of IP-Camera. All hardware has remained virtually unchanged in the first project CxemCAR, changes were made Android-applications to work with the Wi-Fi IP camera.

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.

Control an Arduino from Android device

This article shows you how to control an Arduino from your Android device. We will use USB connection. There are two ways to talk beetwen Arduino and Android: Android Debug Bridge (ADB) MicroBridge mode and Android Open Accessory Protocol. In this example we will consider a MicroBridge mode and will transfer data from Android device to the Arduino.

For Arduino programming we need Arduino IDE

For Android programming we need: Java SE Development Kit, Eclipse IDE, plugin Android Development Tools (ADT) for Eclipse and Android SDK.
