How To Make An Android Controlled Robot
An Android Controlled robot is a simple robot which is operated by an arduino Board,L298N Motor Controller,Bluetooth Moduler(HC-05) and It Can Be Controlled By and Bluetooth Device we are using an Android SmartPhone for controlling it .Attached Bluetooth Module receive the given command which is given by The Android SmartPhone and the connected Arduino Detects the command and then it controls the Motor rotation with a Motor Driver Board (L298n Motor Driver).
An Android Controlled Robot can be used as a Multi functional bot i mean it can be used in many tasks and Operations like Simple Rover,Spying Bot etc.Just we have to attach sensors and equipment on it.
You can Make An Android Controlled Robot In Less Then 10 Minutes with the help of the video we are uploaded it to Youtube link is below just watch it and you can watch Our Android controlled Robot in action and all the steps and procedure in the same video.Video:-
So lets start with our 3rd robotics Project of Andro Root.
✔ L298n Motor Driver
✔ L298n Motor Driver - Arduino Uno
IN1 - 5 ( Digital pin)
IN2 - 6 (Digital Pin)
IN3 - 10 (Digital Pin)
IN4 - 11 (Digital Pin)
✔ HC-05 - Arduino
Pin Configuration of HC-05 Bluetooth module
VCC - 5V
GND - GND
RX - TX
TX - RX
✔ Power - Arduino Uno
9v's Battery holders Red - Vin of Arduino
9v's battery Holders Black - Gnd of Arduino
✔ Power - L298n Motor Driver
9v's Battery holders Red - 12v of Motor Driver
9v's battery Holders Black - Gnd of Motor Driver
Now The circuit is assembled and its time for coding/Programing
This is the Program file for the Arduino Board.Download it and store it on hard disk.
- Steps to burn the program On Arduino by The IDE
Download the Arduino Ide Software From The above given link.Then Install it, now Connect the Arduino with Computer through the cable.open the Arduino software on pc .Click on "File"(Right Top) from the new opened Drop down menu,click on "Open" Now from the newly opened window go to the location location where you have saved the Android Controlled Robot.ino and select it.
Now the software will open it in new window so close the previous window(otherwise you will face an error at burning time) .
After Loading the .ino File click on Upload button (At right top side under the File Option)
Wait Till the uploading complete. it will take 1 or 2 minutes.
- Connect the Bot With Android
After the uploading completed disconnect the bot, And install the Arduino Bluetooth RC Car app from the play store and open it now tap on Setting icon and click on "Connect to Car".A new windows will be open with Available Devices ,in it click on HC-05. It will ask you a pair Key Use 1234 as Pair Key.After pairing The Red Circle(Right Top) will converted to Green.So Now Android Smart Phone is connected to the Bot. Enjoy The Android Controlled Robot.
I hope Our Step by step guide and Video will help you to make an Android Controlled Robot without any problem.This is a simple bot you can modify it with some codes and components so just share your idea through the comment section.I will modify it latter by adding a camera,front back Led,Temperature sensor, Ultrasonic sensor and a display.
