Arduino Wireless Handle Ps2 Controller Kit for Smart Robot Tank Car Chassis



About: Specializing in the OpenSource Hardware. skype: yichone

This controller kit is developed based arduino, which can be controlled by ps2 (i.e., wireless handle). now this controller kit can be get by the following links.


source code and complete document: (at right side to find "RC Robot")

Step 1: Controller Kit

DoitCar_PS2 handle control car is

based on Arduino UNO R3

Development board, use the Arduino IDE to develop intelligent tank car, the UNO development board as the main control board, use the driver board which is fully compatible with the UNO "2 road motor & 16 road servo drive board" for car, and for signal transmission, on the development board connected PS2 handle receiving module, with the PS2 controller can realize the function of manual control of the car.

Step 2: Installation

As the picture 1, insert

the pin header to the front of the driver board, weld firmly on the back, the effect as the picture 2 showed:

Install 4pcs single pass
6mm support coupling into the UNO development board, and try to find 2 circle holes, use M3 nut to lock the UNO development board to make it fixed in the tank chassis; install the support coupling into the active buzzer, fix it in the car chassis(lock it and fix it with M3 nut)


At first, insert the motor wires to the wiring slot on the motor encoder, the red and black wires in the every motor wires is the guide line to control the motor; according to the below pictures:(Note: Every motor power supply“+/-”insert to the idle“VS”pin and“GND”pin on the 0~15 road servo pins.

Function and principle

Function introduction:

Manual mode of PS2 handle control:

The DoitCar_PS2 car can control the forward, backward, left and right of the car through the PS2 handle, and control the on or off of the LED lights in the car and the chirping of the buzzer (if the package includes);

Principle introduction:

Insert the Doit-ESP motor driver board on the UNO development board, ue the inverter on the drive board, y ou only need 4 IO ports to control the left and right motor.

PS2 handle insert to the 10~13 pins on the drive board, correspondance to the D10~D13 pin on the UNO board, it is hardware SPI of the UNO board, so this handle reciver is based on the SPI protocol with UNO board to communicate.

Operating instruction

1)Open the power switch of the Doit-Driver board, you can observe that the led light of the handle reciver which connect with the driver board is in a flashing status, put the handle switch dia to“on”, wait some minutes, the led light on the receiver will be brighted.

2)Press the 4 button on the left of the handle, can control the forward, backward, left and right of the car, press the“select”to stop moving.

3) Hold the right rocker on your right hand, shake the left rocker to control the car.

4)Press the“△”or“×”can manually control the car led light and the chirping of the buzzer.


1)If you can’t control the car normally, please check whether the motor wiring of the car is right or not, whether the Short circuit block is insert on the driver boad or not;

2)Because the car chassis is metal materials, in order to avoid shorting circuit, please use the short couplings to isolate between the car plate and the control board.
