Controlling an Arduino with a standard RC transmitter/receiver

There are many ways to remote control an Arduino, Xbee, RF link, IR…

I decided to try and use something I had laying around and that is common among large group of hobbyist : RC transmitter and receiver pair

remote control's

hello i was watching the lates on hobby robtics on you tube and it had 100 things to build or something like that anyway the second one was to build a remote controll for your robot so you dont have to reprogram it every time you want to test something out. i have no idea how to go about doing this. i think he gave some information but i did not understand any of it. please could someone help.

p.s. i use picaxe if that makes any difference

Aquarduino - The remote controlled aquarium(Arduino inside).

Hello everyone ..

 

The idea of a remote controlled aquarium and generally the control of it using a common pc has been wandering in my mind .

So I decided to start making one .

The idea is to have a common aquarium that can be controlled remotely(the feeding process,information) through the internet hopefully .

The information the user will get through the page I will make for the project is : Ph level and temperature of the water

360,UP & DOWN remote movement

Hi there,

Absolute beginner indeed! lol

I am building up a CCTV on legs, kind of robotic version. The legs won't move on their own (just mechanically)  but I would like to make a motion with the head part (cctv) and I am looking for something which could replicate, more or less, the movements of an human neck, then : left & right ( or better 360 degree) /up & down.All that controlled by radio!

Is that too much to ask or too expensive too concretise ?

'Axe as RC speed controller

Would it be possible to connect the output from a RC reciever to the digital input of a pcaxe 28x1 board and controll the motor outputs?

Of course it's doable, that's not really the question. But does anybody have any thought regarding it? Has anybody done it? I presume the signal out from the RC reciever is a standard Servo-signal. I know CtCpassed a signal from a RC reciever through his 28x1, but I don't wanna controll servos,I wanna controll a couple of DC motors.

 

Make robots talk.. to each other.. dirt cheap!

I have this thing in the back of my mind that "the next step" for me must be my robots talking to each other.

Remote controlled unmanned power-chair

Ok, My idea...

 

I have reason to need a bluetooth or r/f remote controlable powered wheelchair. To be able to remotely turn it on (& off) and manouvre it from an outdoor shelter over to a freshly parked car's drivers door.

What I have at the moment is just the base power chair:

Powertec F50 by Sunrise Medical

 

What I wish to do as much as is possible is to leave the current set-up as it is, and to add the propsed r/c system to work along side it.
