  • Hello MohannadI need some help to work out what arduino requirments I need for the following.I have designed a machine a in my home workshop that I now want to add an RF transmitter and RF receiver to, thereby controlling the machine by remote radio control. The machine in it's present form is controlled by the user pressing either one of two single axis joysticks that power each individual 24v dc motor thereby driving a single wheel. So I've designed a remote control box using the same joysticks ( there are 2 joysticks used on the remote ) and all I need is someone to describe the type of reliable RF transmitter and RF receiver and associated parts that I need to add to the machine to convert from user controlled to radio remote control. The joysticks operate on 5volts ( 5.1 - 4.9 tolera…

    Hello MohannadI need some help to work out what arduino requirments I need for the following.I have designed a machine a in my home workshop that I now want to add an RF transmitter and RF receiver to, thereby controlling the machine by remote radio control. The machine in it's present form is controlled by the user pressing either one of two single axis joysticks that power each individual 24v dc motor thereby driving a single wheel. So I've designed a remote control box using the same joysticks ( there are 2 joysticks used on the remote ) and all I need is someone to describe the type of reliable RF transmitter and RF receiver and associated parts that I need to add to the machine to convert from user controlled to radio remote control. The joysticks operate on 5volts ( 5.1 - 4.9 tolerance ).I'm guessing here but based on my research I need to convert the electrical signal from either or both joysticks ( on the remote unit ) then encode that data, then transmit to the receiver (machine) then decode then send to the variable speed controllers as if this data was directly from the machine joysticks.So what exactly would I require in parts to complete this project. FWIW, I have good programming skills and reasonable basic understanding of electronics.Are there any quality tutorials on this subject of arduino radio control? Any all help is much appreciated. ThanksDazzy
