Introduction: Smart Car Working by Movement of the Finger
That’s my project smart car it not working by mobile or normal remote
It works by a glove so the remote control is movement of my finger
Step 1: Get the Parts
Thats all things we need to make this project
4WD Smart Robot Car Chassis Kit
2* Arduino NANO
3* Battery 9V
4* Relay 5V
2* PCB switch
3* 9V Battery Clip
2* Regulator 5V
2* LED RGB
2* Bluetooth module
4* Transistor 2N3904
2* Female Header 6 Pin
2* Female Header 40 Pin
8* PCB Terminal Block 2 Pin
6* Resistors 320 ohm (For RGB LED)
Resistor 1K ohm (For flex sensor)
4* Resistor 250 ohm (For transistors)
PCB 9x15 cm2 Bread Board Shape
PCB 5x7 cm2 Bread Board Shape
Step 2: The Glove
So what we will do in this step
We will first put the flex sensor in the glove but before you put it you should solder two wires in the sensor
You will use a multipurpose double face tape and hot glue to can put the sensor in the glove and protect it coz after this you will put some glue to be ensure it will not take off
And you will put also some glue in the board and also in the battery
Step 3: Programming the Glove (TX)
This programming for Arduino in the Glove TX circuit
Frist you should defined the TX pin and RX pin for Bluetooth module
With this code
SoftwareSerial mySerial(0, 1);
And something else important the bound rate you select should be the bound rate of your sensor to can send the data.
The bound rate in TX circuit and RX circuit should be the same bound rate.
Step 4: The Frame
In this step we will first soldering a wires in the motors
And then we will put the motors and wheals in the frame
So we will be also put the electronic circuit of RX circuit in the frame
And we will connect the wires of the motors we soldered in first in the circuit we will just put it in the PCB Terminal Block
Then we will add the battery
Step 5: Programming the Car (RX)
This programming of Arduino in the car (RX circuit).
So what this programming actually do?
It will receive the data from the glove like 1 or 2 or 3
And every data the car will move a movement for the six movement
You should choose the same bound rate of the TX circuit and to can the Arduino reading the data
And in RX circuit there’s a RGB LED it make the same colour of the RGB LED in the TX circuit
Step 6: Movement of the Car
There’s a six movement I did in this car forward, right forward, left forward, backward, left backward and right backward.
In the four motors there’s two motors forward and two motors
Motors 2 and 3 forward and motors 1 and 4 backward
So for move forward the motors 2 and 3 will work
For move right forward the motor 3 will work
For move left forward the motor 2 will work
For move backward the motors 1 and 4 will work
For move left backward the motor 4 will work
For move right backward the motor 1 will work
Step 7: Final Step
And we finished :)
Watch the video I upload
In the video of (test project) I used adaptor 12V and 1A for
motors coz my battery’s was empty and I used from my laptop input for electronic circuit of the RX circuit by using cable Arduino NANO.
And I upload another video while I’m test glove after I Calibrated some value with different value you will see how RGB LED changing light and while light change the TX circuit sending data via Bluetooth.
You can put more than flex sensor to can make the movement easy
If you control the motors with drive so you can use input 6V or 9V for motors
But if you used relay you will use input for motors 12V coz you need the motor be in a higher speed coz for move forward you will use just two motors and while turn you will use one motor so to can move the car you will be need to make the motor be in high speed
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
