This instructable was created in fulfillment of the project requirement of the Makecourse at the University of South Florida (www.makecourse.com).

This is an Arduino project using knowledge of Computer Aided design (CAD) softwares like Solidworks, Autodesk Fusion 360, C++ programming knowledge and basic circuit connections

Step 1: Mechanical Components

This instructable was created in fulfillment of the project requirement of the Makecourse at the University of South Florida (www.makecourse.com).

The first step in making this project is to design the mechanical component. I used Autodesk Fusion 360 which is compatible with MAC OS. The parts were tricky, basic concept of CAD knowledge.

Step 2: Arduino Sketch

Attached is the arduino sketch, a better explanation is in the attached the video.

Step 3: Building Process

This instructable was created in fulfillment of the project requirement of the Makecourse at the University of South Florida (www.makecourse.com)

Parts:

1. Arduino Uno

2. Breadboard

3. Jumper Cables

4. Arduino HC-06 Bluetooth shield

5. DC H Bridge Module

6. Motors

7. Screws

Tools

1. Soldering kit

2. Screw drivers

3. Wire cutter

Step 1: Soldering

Attach the red and black wires to the motors and solder them. This should be in sync with the rest of the motors,to make connection easier later on.

Step 2: Coupling

Couple the body parts together

Step 3: Electric Wiring

The electric components should follow the image attached

Pin Description

Motors Connection:

Out1 -> Left Side Motor Red Wire (+ )

Out2 -> Left Side Motor Black Wire ( - )

Out3 -> Right Side Motor Red Wire ( + )

Out4 -> Right Side Motor Black Wire ( - )

LM298 - > Arduino

IN1 -> D5

IN2-> D6

IN2 ->D9

IN2-> D10

Bluetooth Module -> Arduino

Rx-> Tx

Tx ->Rx

GND -> GND

Vcc -> 3.3V

Power

12V - > Connect Battery Red Wire

GND -> Connect Battery Black wire and Arduino GND pin

5V -> Connect to Arduino 5V pin

Step 4: Using Arduino.cc

Upload the code

Step 5: Test

Pair the HC-06 Module with an Android phone

Preferable: "Arduino Car Control" App from Google Playstore

Step 4: Project Preview
