Underwater ROV Arduino assistence please. Answered
I am participating ( with other students ) in a highschool level underwater rov competition, i would LIKE to use arduino to control the robot.
BUT ive never done something like this before
what id like to know is besides the Arduino board ( not sure if Uno would work or if Mega would be necessary ) what kind of compnents would be necassary
Like would the arduino be controlling the motors directly or would it control something to turn on/off the motors? as the motors run on higher voltages then the arduino does
and what would the control side of it be like? i would LIKE to have a basic joystick (2 axis, nothing fancy) and a few buttons but would that require a specific shield or something more complex?
