Super Simple Arduino Rover
very nice instructable! I hadn't seen continuous rotation servos before this - very cool. I love the idea of being able to direct connect a motor without needing an external control board. Thanks for including the video of your rover in operation.With regard to your question about getting rid of the stop and start movement style - have you considered putting the movement functions into interrupt service routines (ISR). This could eliminate the use of the delay() function. From your pictures, I see that you are using an Arduino Uno, which unfortunately only has two interrupts available - so this would be not a complete solution. You could make the forward and backward functions continuous though. Here is a link to the Arduino documentation on interrupts: https://www.arduino.cc/en/Reference/attachInterrupt. I made a few modifications to your sketch, but since I don't have the continuous rotation servos or your remote, i could not test (just compile). I am hesitant to post a revised sketch since i could not actually test it, but here it is.
A Universal RFID Key
Hello,Really cool project. Is there a way to add more than 4 buttons in order to emulate controllers with more controls? I was thinking of using it for SNES but would need an extra 4 buttons past what you have there. Thanks.
Thanks! Your comment made me smile... Have been watching your videos for a while.
Cool Arduino car.
