Virtual Joystick via Bluetooth
Alright! I have successfully gone the other way now! (Not like that). Top Video and yes, the lighting sucked.
Here's the system:
Picaxe 28x2 (in the transmitter) - 433mhz RF TX (the $5 one) - 433mhz RF RX - Picaxe 40x2 (Walter's main brain) - Bluesmirf Bluetooth serial datapipe - Std. USB Bluetooth adapter - Lappy - Processing
As I said in the video, I hope to start relaying distance and turn info via bluetooth to start some very basic "maps" or visual representations of where walter has gone. Basically, I want to start with a virtual etch-a-sketch or better yet, what was that program we used as kids with the turtle and pen-up/ pen-down? Logo? Something like that but with Walter's encoders sending data as to how long and where to draw lines.
As I am still waiting for parts to keep working on Walter's voice, I thought I get back to working with my bluetooth set-up. I think the video is self-explainatory, please excuse my voice --the pollen is kicking my ass!
Enclosed is the code and I just don't feel like writing a huge post right now. Read the code, watch the video, ask questions.
