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.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
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.
