Let's Make Robots!

My big remote control MEGA+XBee


This is the XBee remote control done by a guy who basically just know put everything together with not much electronic. Yep, please go easy on me for this one. All I do really just put everything together so my device looks huge and mess with all these big fat wires running around.

Here is the list I used:

Arduino Mega,
Mega shield,
XBee 1,
2 joysticks,
2 slider?
3" LCD,
900Mhz Wireless reciever,
buttons and some switchs and one 11.1V lipo battery.

The protocol is still under development. I haven't really figure out how to do multitask in Arduino. What I did is to send a Array which looks like this:

Robots side has to analyze the array and assign the value into proper outputs motors, servos or whatever.

Also I am trying to see if devices could send some value back from sensor to remote. Still working on it thou.

If anyone has better idea or inputs are more than welcome. Thanks for watching ;)

thanks I really want ot try this for my S&R robot RES-Q-ME

Make sure you tell that guy who doesn't know much that he did a good job ;-) You said all you did was put it together. Does. That mean it was a kit / design that you worked from? If so, other people might like to know which kit you used and how to find it. If you engineered all that yourself, you did it really well.

Thanks for your encouragement. Na, not a kit. What I mean is I don't know how to make my own circuit board and I don't want to use breadboard on such project, so I bought shield and those plug&play buttons and joysticks. I actually wanna trim down those video wires and remove the hard case from wireless video receiver. But, before I am sure what to do, I don't want to screw up what had been done.

Just one word

Awesome !!

In this case I think it is awesome!
Makes me think of an old third part NES controller that I had, it was about the same size but without the displays. 

I like the way you can choose between different devices but it still keeps showing the images of the big one.

Good luck with it!

That might be a good idea. in that case I have to investigate the wireless receiver. It seems has the function to select different sources.
