Arduino Bluetooth RC Car

Arduino Bluetooth RC Car


****This application is designed to be used with a MODIFIED RC car. You have to replace the car's stock control circuit with a micro controller. This involves programming. The application will not work with a brand new, out of the box RC car. Please visit the website before you download the application.



The application allows you to control an Arduino based RC car over Bluetooth. This is done using a Bluetooth enabled Android phone. Visit this site https://sites.google.com/site/bluetoothrccar/ for the Arduino code and control circuit. The app lets you control the car with either buttons or the phone's accelerometer. A slider bar allows you to control your car's velocity if the car's control circuit has this feature. There are also two buttons for front and back lights. A flashing light lets you know when the phone is connected to the car, and arrows light up letting you know the car's driving direction.

Really good Arduino App Very easy to use. Simple to write Arduino Code for RC car control applications. accelerometer sensor sends simple ASCII characters over Bluetooth module which makes it easy to write code for Arduino.
