Let's Make Robots!

Senior Design Project

My design will be a robotic car that I need to program to move to a specific parking spot. It will start at point X and go to point Y. I will need it to be controlled via wireless communication. What I need the wireless communication to do is tell it what spot to goto. The program created for the microcontroller and the motor controller will direct it to go to the parking spot that is empty. I'm going to be writing a parking lot application in C++ and I would like it to communicate with the microcontroller at a certain point to give it instructions on what to do....

Dagu Robot Chassis Steering

Problems with the steering. It's too tight. The motor won't even turn. My model has 3 flat spurrs set up in the steering. 1 for the feedback pot and one for the turning axis, and 1 for the motor. When they are linked together it gets too tight and the motor tries to spin, but it can't.

Do I need to return it and get another one..

Do I need to have replacement parts sent to me....

Should I send it back and get a different car to map with my Micro Magician Motor controller....

Is there anyway to troubleshoot this issue and make it work without sending it back?
