Arduino Joystick Controller


***This application is meant to control an Arduino based RC car over Bluetooth.

If you want to precisely control your Bluetooth enabled Arduino RC car, this application lets you do that. Composed of two joysticks, you can independently control the car's steering and speed. You can also set the steering and speed ranges from within the application. And in case you have more that one car, each one can have its one set of ranges. In case you have a tank, you can control its cannon by just toggling a button. And since the Arduino can read sensor values, the application is able to receive six independent readings. The first two are floating point readings, while the remaining four are a single byte long. The application sends a command every 50ms. This feature lets the car detect when it is out of range, in which case it'll stop before crashing.

Please visit the tutorial page for the Arduino program and circuit schematics.
