    We used the HC SR-04. I think the HC SR-05 has 5 pins instead of 4 because of the Bluetooth capabilities. If you use the 05, do not connect the 4th pin to anything. Connect GND to pin 5. If you use pin 4 as GND, I think it will act like the 3 pin version. If you have not bought the sensor yet, just use the HC SR-04. It works just fine. Which ever one you use, be sure you have downloaded the library for that component. Good luck with your build.

    I'm afraid I can't help you with your problem. We did not build that version. Ours was the obstacle avoidance model. We did not use a remote control or a smart phone to control our cars. They ran on their own, uncontrolled. You are going to have to upload the code for the smart phone version that uses Bluetooth. I hope you get it working.

    Unfortunately the actual code is on my computer at school and since we on summer holiday now, it will be the 1st of September before I will have access to it. However I did find this on one of my flash drives. I'm not sure if this is the correct code that's on my school computer, but what have you got to lose, right? I hope it works for you. Let me know either way yes or no. //Arduino Obstacle Avoiding Robot //Code adapted from http://www.educ8s.tv //First Include the NewPing and Servo Libraries #include<NewPing.h> #include<Servo.h> #defineTRIG_PIN A4 #defineECHO_PIN A5 #defineMAX_DISTANCE 200 NewPingsonar(TRIG_PIN, ECHO_PIN, MAX_DISTANCE); Servomyservo; booleangoesForward=false; intdistance = 100; intspeedSet = 0; constint motorPin1 = 11; constint motorPin2 = 10; //...

    My 5th grade class made two of the obstacle avoidance robot cars and they work perfectly. Very exciting. Thanks for a great instructable.

    Switched Mode Dual Variable Power Supply

    Thanks for the quick reply. That is fantastic news. Unfortunately, I am not able to use the enclose that you used shipped over here, so I am having to make do with what I can find that is close to what you and the others have used. Now it's time to shop for the components and get to work. One more question. For the wires connecting the pots to the DC/DC converter, would the wires from a CAT5e cable be sufficent?

    Switched Mode Dual Variable Power Supply

    I have to say that this is the best power supply instruction on the Internet that I have ever seen bar none. I want to build one of these but I live in Europe where the voltage is 230 @ 50Hz. I am relatively new to building electronics, so I am very ignorant about this. My question is...do I have to modify or change any parts to accommodate the higher mains input voltage, or can I build it as you have written?

    If you still have your Nikon D3000 user manual, go to page 80 and the white balance section begins there. Fine tuning the white balance begins on page 82.

    Good day, Nice project. I think I'll give it a try, but I have one question for you. What size diode should be used in this project?
