Custom remote controller
I have been working on this project for a long time.This remote control can be used to control any robot that has a xbee to recieve signals .You can call it a universal remote control.
The primary objective for building this controller is to control a fire fighting robot which is still under work.The robot is being made using this vechicle.
The controller has three pushbuttons for selecting mode of operation of the robot.i.e.Autonomous,remote controlled and gyro.
There are two analog joysticks .Left one will be used for driving the robot left,right,reverse,forward and the right joystick will be used for pan/tilt.
Programming is yet to be done.
Here are some pictures clicked during the evolution .
This is the top cover of the controller.Yeah i know its not perfect but what do you expect without a cnc ? :)
Its made out of transperant acrylic sheet.
Xbee with sparkfun xbee explorer regulated.
Pushbuttons and switch .
All the wires are connected to a "Kind of protoshield" stacked on top of arduino uno.This is the lower plate of controller.
Top cover with lcd,switch,potentiometer, and pushbuttons mounted.
Feeded the power for first time
Now the only work left is Programming and for that i have to first complete my robot so that i can program this controller as per the robot operations.
Thanks for reading !
