Introduction: BlueDuino the Android Controlled Arduino Robot
For starters this is my first instructable, and my first tutorial overall. With this said point out in the comments what you didn't understand in this post.
A few weeks ago I got curious on how Bluetooth controlling on arduino works, after a little research i found out that is is a very simple process, so i purchased a robot build, and a JY-MCU Bluetooth Serial Port Module. I decided that the best way to control this robot would be with my very own custom made android app.
Step 1: Tools, Parts, Software, the Arduino Code and the App
- JY-MCU Arduino Bluetooth Wireless Serial Port Module
4WD Drive Aluminum Mobile Robot Platform - This is not needed but this is what i used in the project. Let me know what body you used!
Adafruit Motor/Stepper/Servo Shield for Arduino v2 Kit - v2.3 - This may require soldering if you ordered other headers for it...
MIT App Inventor 2 - The easy way to create an app
My Arduino code
Step 2: Learning the Code and Setting Up the Module
Step 3: Using My App
Click Bluetooth pic and then your Bluetooth module that you paired your phone to, this should let you control it.
Step 4: Thank You for Reading!
Any feedback would be appreciated! A video might come later tonight, and please show me pictures if you completed this ible!
Step 5: Video(s)
Here is a basic test, the motors are unfortunately 1kg torque so they aren't that strong.
