DearRobotShop Community

I have a 2WD Arduino Compatible Mobile Robot Kit, and I would like you suggest me some ways to control it from a netbook through an usb cable? The platform has serial commands?

Thank you,

And I was wondering where I can find the source code for the 2WD Arduino Compatible Mobile Robot Kit.
Thanks.

You can connect the Arduino board directly to the netbook via USB cable. You would need to upload a sketch to the robot to wait for commands sent to it from the netbook (sent via serial port. It's up to you to determine which program to use and how to code it. From the look of it, the board looks similar to the ROMEO, and there is sample code available. You need to check which pins are used by the motor controller.

Thank you for your answer, however, I would like to add my program to the existing program, and thus, don´t lost the original program. For that reason, If anyone can provide me this code, it would be fantastic. Another question is Does the robot have any serial comands?, because I tested that last time the serial port (19200 baudios), and the data received was coherent and changed according to stimuli in its sensors.

The controller is based on the Arduino Duemilanove / Uno (check which chip you have). There is a complete guide to understanding Arduino on http://www.arduino.cc, complete with how to use serial etc.
