Android bluetooth robot

Bluetooth controlled Arduino robot. Send commands from a bluetooth terminal from an android phone to the arduino.


I'm using:

arduino uno: http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9950

sparkfun magician chassis: http://www.sparkfun.com/products/10825

adafruit motor shield: http://www.adafruit.com/products/81

bluesmirf silver: http://www.sparkfun.com/products/10269 


The ultrasonic sensor is set to stop the robot if it's less than 10cm away from an object. Work in progress..

Was the code for the IPhone straight C++/C or did it require some objective-C to implement?

Also, do you have plans to create your own IPhone interface GUI?  Touch Screen up, down, left, right arrows, with acceleration and break buttons ?    Regardless, nice looking bot...love your results thus far.


*EDIT* Never mind the Iphone comment ... just reread your post :)  ... Same question about the GUI though...any plans to make your own interface on the Android?

I think you can make it work on iPhone if you can install a bluetooth terminal and pair with the bluesmirf module. I've been thinking of making a simple java app to control the robot, or just use one of the existing ones (ex: cellbots).

Bravo Razvan, bun venit pe LMR!

Nice robot you built there! Waiting to see more!

Multumesc! Inca sunt la inceput cu arduino, sper sa adaug mai multa functionalitate robotului.

Hi, thanks for the warm welcome!


Would you please email me, I want to send you a copy of my control app to play with.

Hi, thanks a lot! But I bought the app yesterday.. I'll have to adapt my code to make it work.
