G’Remote – Arduino based remote controller

27-August-2009 UPDATE:
My friend Gerhard from Germany asked me to build a walkthrough regarding the G-Remote, with part list, schematics and code. And here it is.  Enjoy  :D

___________________________________________________________________________

This is my first attempt to make a custom remote controller, and also my first customized Arduino.
After seeing this post made by OddBot I wanted to try to make one myself.

I figured out that if I purchased one remote controller it would be cheaper than buying two of these and paying shipment to Portugal.

So, ripping the guts from a game remote controller I get two joysticks, a couple of buttons, two nice motors and one small lcd.

Each joystick have one button inside, that is cool  :-)

Now I have more control over my bots, specially the ones with two motors.. will post videos later.

no comments on this one :-)

  1. Boas..

    Desde já os meus parabéns, esta excelente o comando..

    Eu gostava de fazer um parecido, mas não tenho muita experiência, gostava de saber como é que ligaste os joystick sff..

    Cumps

  2. Olá Flávio, os joysticks são dois potenciómetros normais, vê aqui para veres com se ligam ao arduino.
    Não sei se reparaste mas no inicio do post está um link para uma explicação mais detalhada da construção do g.remote e respectivos códigos. Boa sorte ;)
