Xbox 360 Wireless + Arduino
I am working on a project where I can control an RC car using an Xbox one controller. So far I have purchased: an Arduino uno (smd), Sainsmart usb host shield, Sainsmart motor shield (To allow the uno the be able to power the servo motors), Xbox one controller, Xbox one wireless PC adapter, Arduino PC cable (came with uno), Arduino 9v external battery pack (came with uno), and RC car I am willing to take apart. This is what I have set up: usb host shield is attached on top of the uno, motor shield is attached on top of the usb host shield, Xbox one wireless PC adapter is plugged into the usb host shield, Arduino uno is connected to the PC, 9v external power supply is connected to uno, and the controller is ready to connect to the wireless PC adapter. The problem is that the Xbox wireless PC adapter does not seem to be receiving power. When the adapter is plugged directly into the computer, is works how it should, but when it is plugged into the host shield, it doesn't show any indication that it is even receiving power. I don't know if the code has anything to do with this but I need help. Thanks in advance!
Does this work with an Xbox one controller and Xbox one PC adapter? Please answer asap. thanks!
