Introduction: DIY Phone Controlled FPV Rover (Fast & Agile)

Picture of DIY Phone Controlled FPV Rover (Fast & Agile)

Let's build a Bluetooth/ WiFi controlled FPV Drone! RoverBot is a highly educational Arduino based ATV-drone. It's simple to make, easy to program and is a great starter project for hobbyists! The bot is very fast and agile, not to mention of it carrying two "29,000 rpm" motors! It can surely outrun humans regardless of the terrain you're on!

This RoverBot is a soft prototype. My next agenda is to make v2.0 water resistant, shockproof and dirt-proof. The next one would probably carry metal-gearboxes and long range TX RX modules.

How Do You Control It?
RoverBot is based on the famous Arduino development board. Since Arduino supports a wide variety of shields and modules (RC/ WiFi/ Bluetooth), you can choose any type of communication. For my setup, I'm currently using my JY-MCU Bluetooth module, as seen in my previous robot project. You can control RoverBot with your smartphone (via app) and display the FPV footage on another smartphone. Although, Bluetooth has limitations when it comes to range, that's why I'm planning to buy a xBee module to get at least 1km of control.

Endless Possibilities! Ideas!
- Rescue Drone (ex. Redcross Drone)
- Home Surveillance Bot
- Scientific Research Data logging Bot
- Laser Tag FPV Bots!

RoverBot is equipped with:
- 2x Tamiya PlamaDash Motors (29,000rpm - Carbon Brushed)
- Tamiya Twin Gearbox (Configured @58:1 gear ratio)
- Tamiya Track and Wheels Set (With Peg Board)
- 7.4v - 950mAh Turningy LiPo Battery
- Pololu 2x30A Motor Driver
- JY-MCU Bluetooth Module
- 5MP Wireless IP Camera
- Arduino Uno

Building The Bot In 15 Minutes (Fast Forward)

TAKE NOTE: To prevent the brushes from wearing out quickly, the Rover's motor driver is set to half speed (200/400) . Remember, these motors are designed to operate at 3v not 7.4v.

Here are more photo's of RoverBot. Thank you guys for voting! I hope you enjoy the project!

Step 2: Tools & Materials

Picture of Tools & Materials

Here's the list of my parts. BTW, wait for a thanksgiving sale in Pololu.com, I saved 55% from their ridiculous discounts.

Attention! Read First Before Purchasing
I bought most of my parts locally, that includes all the Tamiya products and my Arduino Uno clone, the rest were bought online. Please canvas for cheaper prices. Compared to where I buy Tamiya products, Pololu retails Tamiya kits that costs 2x more. If you live in the Philippines then you are lucky enough to have "Lil's Hobby Shop" (located @ SM Megamall & Glorietta 4).

Parts & Matterials (50% Alternatives):
- Arduino UNO R3 Clone
- Pololu Dual VNH5019 Motor Shield (2x30A)
- JY-MCU Bluetooth Module (10-15m Range)
- 2x Tamiya Plasma Dash Motors (Fastest Mini Model)
- Tamiya Twin Motor Gearbox Set (stock motors included)
- Tamiya Universal Plate Set
- Tamiya Track & Wheel Set
- 2 cell 950mAh LiPo Battery
- IP Camera (WiFi Cam)
- Super Glue Bottle
- Sugru Sachet/ Hot Glue

Tools:
- Leatherman
- Screwdriver Set
- Dremel Rotary Tool

Step 3: Assemble the Twin Gearbox

Picture of Assemble the Twin Gearbox
Time to unbox the gearbox! Simply follow the instruction manual or just refer to the video tutorial below. The Tamiya Twin-Gearbox should come with two stock motors, grease, wrench, gears & housing. 

HUGE REMINDER: USE THE "58:1" GEAR RATIO!

Tips & Reminders:
- Grease the gears after assembling the gearbox. (not before)
- Don't forget the metal spacers, or the gearbox will screech.
- Replace The Stock Motors With Tuned Motors (go to step #3)
- Go for the 58:1 gear ratio, it's faster than the 204:1 gear ratio.

I'll be posting my tutorial on the Twin-Gearbox assembly soon..

Buy From Pololu

Step 4: Motor Upgrades!

Picture of Motor Upgrades!

If you haven't explored the world of Tamiya yet, their 4WD mini series offers a wide selection of fine tuned motors, gearboxes, wheels & tracks. The Twin-Gearbox includes two Mabuchi (stock) motors, they only run for about 10,000 rpm, that's kind of slow for rover drone designed to be fast and agile.

So far Plasma Dash Motors are still the fastest in Tamiya's 4WD mini motor series. The motors may be pricey but, you'll get the most out of your money. It's a carbon brushed motor that spins 29,000 rpm (@3v) and 36,000rpm (@7v). The motors are designed to operate with a 3v power source, increasing the voltage would result to a higher rpm rate but would wear out the c.brushes a lot quicker. It would be ideal to stick with a 3v-6v output. With the Pololu 2x30 Motor Driver and a 2 cell LiPo battery, the Arduino's program must be set to a max speed of 320/400, you'll soon find out what this means in the coding step/ page. 

Stock Motors (Mabuchi FA-130RA)
If you guys are curious, the Twin-Gearbox comes with two Mabuchi FA1-30 stock motors. They operate at voltages between 1.5v - 3v. Overpowering it would result to the burning of brushes. There's a downloadable datasheet below with a much detailed description of the motors.  

So Why Not Go Brushless?
BL motors cost more, draw more current and isn't available for the mini motor format (size). 

Plasma Dash vs. Stock Motors:
If you want to make your bot a lot faster then upgrade them with two Plasma Dash motors. The Plasma Dash is 3x faster compared to the stock motors that came with the Twin-Gearbox set. So what are the downsides of the upgrade? Obviously, a faster motor needs larger batteries and a higher Ampere rate



Step 5: Choosing Your Motor Driver

Picture of Choosing Your Motor Driver

I've been using the Pololu Dual VNH5019 for over three years. Pololu's shield can run two 30 ampere brushed motors! Pololu has done a great job. The shield is bloody genius! It performs really well in competitions, it's extremely reliable and virtually indestructible! :D The Arduino R3 Motor Shield is also a great choice, but can only support 4A motors. DealExtreme on the other hand sells cloned versions for half the price, I haven't tried them yet but the reviews are good.

My Preferred Choices:
1st.) Pololu Dual VNH5019 (2x30 Amperes) - $49 ($35 Christmas)
2nd.) DX Dual VNH Clone (2x30 Amperes) - $24
3rd.) Arduino R3 Motor Shield (2x4 Amperes) - $25
4th.) DX, R3 Motor Shield Clone (2x4 Amperes) - $13

Want to save money? Make one for only $8.00! Read more about this in the next page!

Motor Outputs: 2 Motors (Left & Right)
Possible Robot Movements: Left, Right, Forward, Backward & etc..
PWM Pins: [12&11]  [6&5]

Step 7: Assemble the Track Set

Picture of Assemble the Track Set

After finishing the Twin-Gearbox's assembly, you can now unbox your plate and track set. When you open the track set, you'll find 1 gear wheel and 3 types of rollers. Don't follow the manual, we will be using a different configuration.

Steps [Simple Refer To The Photo or Video]:
1st.) Mount the Twin-Gearbox by screwing it on the last hole of the plate set.
2nd.) Push the gear-wheel toward's the twin-gearbox's axle.
3rd.) Screw the 1st hole of the L-shaped mounts on the 6th hole of the plate set. 
4th.) The largest roller goes to the 1st hole of the L-shaped mounts.
5th.) Mount the rear roller's mount at the last hole of the plate set. 
6th.) The rear end of the plate set uses medium sized rollers.
7th. ) You won't be needing the small rollers.

Step 8: Mount the Arduino & Motor Driver

Picture of Mount the Arduino & Motor Driver

Simply screw the Arduino in place then stack the motor driver above it. Buy the smaller plate set or cut a piece of acrylic set if you want to suspend your Arduino. You can also use standoffs to replace the plastic suspender. 

Step 9: Connect the Bluetooth Module

Picture of Connect the Bluetooth Module

You can buy the Bluetooth Module from DX.com, for $8, don't worry about the shipping, it's free. There's a gap between the Arduino board and Twin-Gearbox, better use that gap for the BT module. I used a blob of sugru to mount the Bluetooth module.

How Does It Work?
So far, I know that the app sends characters/ bytes to your Arduino board via Bluetooth (serial communication). Your Arduino, then decodes these by using conditional statements. (will be discussed on the programming page/ step)

Wiring Instructions:
- "TX of Bluetooth Module" goes to "RX of Arduino"
- "RX of Bluetooth Module" goes to "TXof Arduino"
- "VCC of Bluetooth Module" goes to "3.3v of Arduino"
- "GND of Bluetooth Module" goes to "GND of Arduino"
- The State & Key pins of the BT modules are unused. 
__________________________________________________
Upgrade Please:
Better upgrade the Bluetooth with a RF/ xBee/ WiFI transceiver for a longer range of transmission but if you prefer using a smartphone and app, you can stick with the BT module, although you would have a limited range of 20m.

Proximity sensors are optional, you don't need them.


Step 10: Mounting the IP Camera

Picture of Mounting the IP Camera

Sorry but it's up to you on finding a cheap IP camera. I bought mine locally from a random store I saw weeks ago. 

IP cams connect to WiFi networks, that means that the camera doesn't need a separate Arduino shield for data transmission because the camera itself has a built-in WiFi transmitter. All you need is to power and connect it to a 2.7GHz antenna to extend the range. My IP cam requires a +5v power supply, luckily Arduino has a regulated +5v pin, that's why I don't have to make another 7805 regulator for my cam.

Step 11: Connect the Battery

Picture of Connect the Battery

Lithium Polymer batteries are probably the most powerful batteries existing today. They are small in size, has a very high battery capacity, and has a high "c" rating. LiPos are also 7x-10x more power than AA (NiCd/ NiMH) batteries.

Risks Of Lithium Polymer:
We all know that Lithium-Polymers bloat, and when they bloat they start to become useless. LiPo batteries are high maintainance batteries that need to be recharged once in every 2 weeks otherwise they'll bloat. LiPos also need special balancing chargers, trickle chargers would destroy them.

Step 12: The Arduino Codes (C++)

Picture of The Arduino Codes (C++)

Simply upload the sketch to your Arduino. If you have a Pololu VNH5019 Motor Driver, the codes would work like magic! BTW, you'll need to download and install the library in order for the codes to work.

Step 14: You're Done! Mod It!

Picture of You're Done! Mod It!

Future Plans/ Mods:
- Replace Bluetooth with xBee transceiver module for longer range!
- Larger battery capacity (2 cell - 1,300mAh LiPo)
- Mounted Airsoft Mechanism
- Gripper/ Mechanical Arm
- Add A Water-Tight Case (for electronics)

Ideas! What To Do? 
1.) Laser Tag RoverBot - Create 4x FPV RoverBots, add a laser turret at the back of each bot. The goal is to hit the opponent's at the laser sensor. Every hit sends send a score to the laptop via WiFi. When the game ends, players can view their score on laptop and also view the recorded FPV replay footage.
2.) Autonomous Airsoft Rover Turret - multiple RoverBots protecting your property. All gathering data and sharing them to one computer via WiFi. Uses IP cam to detect intruder, if face = not recognize then fire airsoft at target.

Hey first of all I love it! and secondly would this work with an LM298N h bridge? just starting out so I'm not quite sure any help greatly appreciated :)

ASCAS (author)fswan2014-03-18

Cool, thanks!

_____________________________

Good question! If you are using stock motors then yes, if you upgraded your motors with Tamiya's PlasmaDash then no. The stock motors that I am talking about are the ones that come with the Twin-Gearbox set. Those motors draw less current compared to the Plasma Dash motors. The L298N can only handle 2 amperes per channel, 4 amperes when combined. The Plasma Dash on the other hand needs at least 4 amps per motor, that will require two L298N chips (aka/ bridging H-bridges).

You would also have to consider the "c" rating of your LiPo batteries (discharge rate), it indicates how fast it is for the battery pour-out all of its power in a short period of time. LiPos have high "c" ratings, it's like carrying a car battery on one tiny robot but smaller in size!

Formula: (C-Rating) x (AH) = Maximum Constant Amp
(950mAH 50C Lipo Battery): 0.950AH X 50C = 47.5A

Hey!! Someone is copying this instrucatble:

https://www.instructables.com/id/Arduino-Ble-Rover/

Sorry if he had taken your permission I am not working for instrucatbles but just making this place plagiarism free because this place is awesome!!

BIGDOG1971 made it! (author)2014-03-24

I made it using an Adafruit "AFMotor shield" controller. It works perfectly (just some code modifications for AFMotor library). The Android RC controller works properly. AWESOME!!!

Congratulations!

Cheers!

By the way, this projects works with L298N Dual H Bridge too. I have used 3 pieces of 3.7V@4000mA (Li-ion) battery with a efficiency of more than 60 min.

melkson (author)2016-06-23

I love your build, and want to thank you for sharing it. I'm just getting into arduino and RC tanks, and have a question. As you have noted before, the L298N Dual H Bridge should work fine for the stock motors, but wouldn't I have to reduce the output from the L298N to 1.5v to keep from burning out the motors?

vietanisme (author)2016-06-14

Hi ASCAS, thanks for the instructible. It's very helpful for my current project.

BTW, where do you get the camera. And how much does it cost?

slaveboy2000 (author)2016-05-28

where do you see the fpv? Also can you make it so that the fpv is shown on the app your using to drive it?

Hi
Did anybody try to build this project with a deek-robot motor shield?

MikaM11 (author)2016-04-08

Hi ! I build my robot with exactly the same parts as you did, except I used "Dual VNH2SP30 Stepper Motor Driver Moto Shield For Arduino" -motor driver. Now I am having some problems with the code. The motorshield does not give voltage to the motors. I copied your code and downloaded the library as you instructed. Have you any idea what could be wrong with my motor shield or code ?

Thanks in advance !!

meeeeep (author)2015-07-29

The specified motor driver appears to no longer be available. Can you tell me either where I can get one or a viable replacement? Preferably not too expensive if possible.

vesihiisi9 (author)meeeeep2016-04-07

I'm pretty late
to the punch answering the question, but maybe it will be useful to
someone. Pololu updated the driver versions from the ash02a used here to an ash02b in March 2014. According to the company, most users will not notice the difference with the updated revision.

Compared to ash02a, the following changes were made:
  • Pass-throughs were added for the four additional pins (SCL, SDA,
    IOREF, and an unused pin) on the Arduino Uno R3 and all newer Arduinos.
  • The additional capacitor through-holes, the Arduino power jumper,
    and the upper block of pin-remapping jumpers (for Arduino pins 8-12)
    were moved slightly to make room for the new pass-throughs.
  • Different reverse-protection MOSFETs are used. (This does not
    significantly change the electrical or thermal performance of the
    shield.)
MiguelH3 (author)2016-02-22

Really awesome! But I have a question, could you please tell me if you opened the camera yourself or you bought it that way

Great Instructable!

I'm pretty new to this stuff, so please be patient with me. LOL

I recently bought the JY-MCU referenced above because it sounds like exactly what I need. I'm just not sure how to use it or if it will work.

In my attempts to start simple and learn as I go, I bought a Zumo Robot for Arduino from Pololu. All you do with it is program your Arduino (I have a Leonardo), hook it up, and go. All I've done with it so far is program it to line follow.

Anyway, my question is this: Can I use the JY-MCU and the Android app so that I can use my phone to control it? If so, how would I go about doing so?

Thanks for your help!

iamV1 (author)TwinDaddyD2015-09-04

Yes, you should be able to. Just connect the PINs from the JY-MCU to the arduino. In your code/sketch, you'd have to enable the bluetooth connection with your android phone like the way he has done.
