Android controlled RC Lamborghini
« on: August 13, 2010, 03:12:33 PM »
Hi all.

[youtube]3dbJKwIKYhk[/youtube]

This is a little project I threw together yesturday.
Taking a basic cheap as chips R/C toy car, I replaced the R/C circuit with a servo controller and
bluetooth modem. I also changed the steering from a DC motor which gave 3 states; centered,
full left and full right, to a 9g servo giving more precise control and a larger lock angles.

The app sends the steering angle and the speed value, calculated from the accelerometers,
over a bluetooth SPP connection.

Thanks
Rob.

Yay! Android development!

I'm so tired of the blatant hypocrisy by members of the open source community writing apps for the closed and controlling platform of the iPhone. Don't get me started on Linux users that have iphones.

Nice work, makes me want to get into Android development to write a controller for my SAGAR robot. Any chance I can look at your source to see how you did it?
