Wireless Arduino/XBee Game Controller

Wireless Arduino/XBee Game Controller

For this project, I keep the same controller as in the previous post but, instead of controlling a servo motor  through a second Arduino, I will use it as a game controller. The game will be played on my desktop computer. Since I am not very good at writing games, I downloaded the PyGame library. […]

Wireless Arduino/XBee Remote Control with Compass and Accelerometer

Wireless Arduino/XBee Remote Control with Compass and Accelerometer

A few weeks ago we played with XBee wireless devices. Last week we played with accelerometers and compass. This week we will put it all together in a custom remote control. Our first project will be to remotely control a servo motor by using two Arduinos and two XBee modules. The remote control (transmitter) should be straight […]

Build a Custom Arduino (Part 3) – Add a Compass

Build a Custom Arduino (Part 3) – Add a Compass

This post is the last part of this series of articles showing how to build a project using a custom Arduino board. To the accelerometer I added a compass. It begins to look more like a forest than an electronic circuit. The compass uses the IC2 protocol to communicate with the Arduino micro-controller. That make […]
