RC Truck to Arduino Robot w/ multiple sensors
i am confused about the shunt. what exactly is it and how do i remove it
Umm yes and no. The 9V battery powered the Arduino and the Ping sensors. The sensor were attached to pins on the motor shield. These were just pass through pins to the Arduino board below though. I battery from the RC truck also ran through this shield but only fed the motors (the third picture in step 6). If the RC battery was a little bigger I could have left the shunt in place on the motor shield and powered everything off of it.
Dude, this is awesome! Really dig how you set up your sensors. Looks like yours could do some serious off roading.

Nice project...should be possible to use the motor bridges already inside the car, saves a lot of money ;)I will try such a project, and wanting to keep RC functionality...
do you have to power both motor shield and arduino????
Hi! I just made this robot and I used the sensors you are talking about. First, you have to define an "int" for each pin of the sensors "int Pecho1", "int Ptrig1", etc. Second, you have to set up the pins (echo as inputs, trig as outputs). Third, you have to delete the "pinMode" lines on the rest of the code.
Ready to explore Mars! Excelent and very precise code. The chassis of this RC truck had a second motor for extra torque so I did some code additions. I also used ultrasonic sensors with echo and trigger. They were all defined on the setup. Many Thanks!!
sir how to converts the code if I use a ultrasonic sensor with echo ang trigger pins?.can u help me please..
