Introduction: Bluetooth Mobile Robot Using Arduino Uno & Android
Everyone loves mobile robot :) This is a mobile robot kit based on Maker UNO(Arduino UNO compatible). You can learn electronics, sensors, microcontroller and coding all at once, not to forget having fun too!
The kit comes in loose parts, so you will need to assemble it. What's so special about this mobile robot kit is it has a Bluetooth module where you can control it with your smartphone and we have prepared the steps for you to control it using your smartphone apps. Of course, your smartphone must have Bluetooth :) Every phone nowadays should have it.
Note: Compatible with Android smartphone with Bluetooth only, not compatible with iPhone.
With the beginner-friendly Maker UNO as the controller, everyone can build and program this mobile robot. We have also included:
- Dual channel motor driver
- Custom designed acrylic base
- Two "TT" brush motor4 x AA battery to power the controller and motor,
- Of course, it comes with the Bluetooth module :)
To make life even easier, we have prepared
- Manual for you to connect the wires
- Sample code for Bluetooth control
- APK for Bluetooth app installation (Android only)
