Introduction: Arduino Boat on IR Remote

About: My name is Alex and I like to do it all with my own hands. I'm fond of arduino and I like to invent different constructions on it.

Today I will show how to make a simple arduino IR remote boat.

Step 1: Watch the Video

Step 2: Materials


- Ceiling tiles

- Arduino NANO

- IR receiver

- Resistors

- IR remote control

- Servo motor sg-90

- Electric motor

- Transistor 2n2222

- Condenser

- Metal wire

- Transparent plastic

- Batteries 4.8V

- Propeller

Step 3: Cutting Parts

It is necessary to cut out all the details the pattern from of plastic and ceiling tiles

Step 4: Gluing Together

We glue the whole part up to the moment shown in the photo

Step 5: Motor Installation and Rotary System

For the motor in the body make a hole and install the motor perpendicular to the rear wall. The screw is made of aluminium (1mm). He needs to be twisted to the stubble from the handle and put on the motor shaft as shown in the photo. The swivel system is made of metal wire, a metal rod, plastic and a servo rocker

Step 6:

We connect all the components according to the scheme and load the sketch into arduino.

For control, you can use any remote control to do this: send a signal to the finished circuit, open the COM-port, to read the values and indicate them in the code. On the transistor you need to put a radiator

Step 7: Final Assembly and Decoration

At this step, glue all the parts (the nose covers of the ship must be selected independently). also in

a cap of Nuno to make apertures and to stick a transparent plastic. These windows are needed to connect the console and the receiver. As a decoration and an additional layer of protection, I glued the ship with aluminum tape
