What is it capable of?
- It can be controlled using gestures.
- It can Send temperature , object distance , battery level , etc. values to the glove ( LCD ).
- Can run on 45+ degree angle.
- Tx Rx pair on both rover and Glove ( for bi-directional data transfer ).
Why to use joysticks to control you robot when you can control it by the gestures of your hand ! This robotic Rover works on 433MHz Band RF Modules (ASK).
The remote is modified into a GLOVE which is equipped with
an accelerometer (ADXL335)
16×2 LCD display
8 button keypad
and a transceiver
The rover and glove is based on ATmega328 P which is used in Arduino Uno as well.
