Want to add audio and lighting effects to your R/C car? The R/C Animator uses a Propeller Platform USB to read servo signals and play special effects. Gadget Gangster writes;
R/C Animator triggers effects based on the position of the servos in your vehicle. So, you can trigger the playback of a rumbling V8 when the throttle servo opens up. Or you could connect a spare servo channel to the R/C Animator to turn on an LED ‘light bar’ and play a siren. Effects include;
Up to 32GB of audio samples can be stored and played back in CD quality stereo. An onboard audio amp will drive speakers up to 1/4 Watt.
Up to 25 LED’s can be turned on, blinked, or faded.
Secondary servo movements
Multiple servos can be directly controlled by R/C Animator, so a single wireless channel can trigger secondary servo animations
R/C Animator is designed to chain and combine these effects.
