BARC Jeep - An XBOX Controlled Power Wheels
How did you connect the linear actuator and electric motors to one battery? Was it all connected in series?
Is it something like this?
Hey Nerdspouse cool project i am starting to put all the parts together for a similar build. I am upgrading a single 6v motor to dual 12v on a ride on beetle. I was wondering on the simple motor controller did you use one for bothe motors or one each, i think i read your jeep is dual motor but was unsure about how you wired them to one cotroller. Tha ks for any help and again cool build.
Great tutorial, I'm working with a group that plans to modify a power wheels to include seating for a disabled child, incorporate proximity sensors, parental control, ect. We would like to do something similar to your Jeep. We haven't gotten the Xbox receiver yet, so we were using the Usb Host Shield Library 2.0 > Xbox > XBOXUSB example to try to test serial communications with a wired controller (the controller was not Microsoft brand, which i suspect was the issue). We couldn't get anything past the "XBOX USB Library Started". There was no response from any buttons or triggers. Any suggestions? Also has anyone had any luck using the new Xbox One wireless receivers?
Hello! I love this tutorial it's excellent. Thankyou for giving up your time to show us your marvellous work.I am a 13 year old boy from London with a decent understanding of the arduino. i was looking to control two motors with an l298n h-bridge motor controller and an Xbox 360 controller. Unfortunately I wasn't able to figure out how to modify the sketch so it would be suitable for my project because of my lack of experience.I know this is asking "A LOT" but could you please send me a sketch where I'll be able to control my robot with a l298n h-bridge motor controller for two motors and an Xbox 360 controllerThank you for your time Michael Donkor Please reply soon
Amazing use of 2x4's, I must say. This is a great Instructable!
