using the iphone as an rc transmitter
« on: August 01, 2014, 09:58:22 AM »
hey I want to implement into one of my robots a way to control it via my own app. I do know how to program apps. I want to have a joystick on the right and some commands on the left. and on the center a space for the camera image for it to be FPV. any ideas of how I can do this?

It would depend on what microcontroller or similar processor you are using. You may want to look into something called a Cellbot( http://www.cellbots.com ). I have done a couple research projects using them before and a lot of the techniques people use for making Cellbots could help you out a lot.

Personally I use an Android tablet and an Arduino using a bluetooth module, but I was not trying to transmit video then, only commands / sensor data. You could use 2 Android phones though. And that would require you to simply send the video feed from one phone to the second and then just control the robot with the "controller' phone you are using.
