Farrusco RC

I wanted to keep working with the XBee modules, and I thought it would be cool to control Farrusco.

So, first I used 2 potenciometers and assigned one to each motor.. and then I used a nunchuck controller.
Both require a learning curve and it’s only after a while that you start to feel the touch  :]

This is the code I´m using to control the robot with the Nunchuck

  1. Hi Guibot,
    Very nice project, well done!
    I like to show your “Farrusco RC” project to my students.

    I have a question regarding codes that you use in transmission. There are two .pde files in “Arduino_Nunchuck_Farrusco_SENDER” folder.

    How did you load two .pde files into an Arduino?
    Or, the two .pde files need to combine into one .pde file.

    Thanks and best regards,

    Billy :)

  2. Hello Billy
    I’m so glad to know you are thinking in showing this project to your students. What kind of class is it? I would love to know your students feedback! :)

    As for the two files, you have to open the main file with the Arduino software, in this case it is Arduino_Nunchuck_Farrusco_SENDER.pde. After opening this file, the other file will show up on the next tab.

    Good luck ;)
