The Best Gosh-Darn Android-Based Robot Controller.
The robot controller app is out! Woo Hoo! Finally, a Android-based hobbyist robot controller that works with every microprocessor. There is no corresponding software required on the robot, you can write your own code to your heart's content.
A clean, simple app that features:
- Joystick control via pushbutton and tilt Auxiliary buttons
- Voice Recognition and "voice commands"
- Text to speech
- Data can be sent to and from the robot for debugging
All that is needed is a cheap bluetooth unit (a BlueSmirf unit from SparkFun was used for testing) and any flavor of microcontroller. Arduino, Picaxe, Propeller, BS2, AVR --anything that can receive serial data can use this app. If you can send text to a LCD or a terminal, you can use this app. Baud rate from 9600 to 115,200 are supported and auto-detected.
And it is only 2 bucks, for cryin' out loud!
If you are overseas, buy now and take advantage of the weak US dollar!
Added some more videos. A demo of the app running on an Arduino and also a sketch running in Processing that can talk to the app.
