WIRELESS CONTROLING
« on: August 07, 2008, 07:00:36 PM »
How can I take ever thing in my robot and hook it up to a a wireless transmitter, so i can build some kind of watch so i can control my robot with voice comand from where I'm steading. Oh and how do I amplify the signal to control from far distance. Thank you

Well, you can't simply hook it up, you will need a lot of glue logic, because most radio transmitters are analog.
The simplest way is to get a bluetooth module, decode its output with a MCU, and depending on the incoming data, toggle pins, conencted to your robot (motor drivers, leds, etc).

Simplest and most inefficient hack to increase distance is to make a longer antenna. Next, comes hacking the power stage. Oh yeah, this is probably illegal, unless you have some degrees in communication and a license for that frequency.

Try to make more sense in your threads :P

you are looking to do pretty complex stuff kid. Get your feet wet in robotics before attempting to do this. Do admin's 50 dollar robot tutorial first.

This project will require :
Microcontroller knowledge
Ability to understand datasheets
TTL serial interface experience
Good foundation in electronics

Lucky for you I planned out this system a while ago when I was redoing my butler robot. All it is is one of those walkie talkie watches. Hook up the speaker output of one of them to the input of a speech recognition circuit ( based off the VoiceDirect module or SR-06). Train all the words through the walkie talkie watch and then just interface your own microcontroller to the speech recognition board and have it do whatever you need to do on your robot. 


Have you any experience in microcontrollers ?
Check out the Roboduino, Arduino-compatible board!
