Build The 3DBT Car

 

 

Overview

Frame
The frame of the 3D Printed Bluetooth car,  is just two beams and the perf board, Connect these with screws. The motors can be connected next and the wheels are ready to be attached. The front wheel can be mounted, also.
Electronics
Each electronic module has a clip or hold down. The micro controller use the clip and the motor driver and Bluetooth modules both have unique hold downs the screw into the perf board. The battery pack can be mounted at this point.
Wiring
Description showing the Connections for the wires from the motors is shown on the motor driver module. The 4 Motor driver wires to the micro controller are shown in the documentation. The 4 wires for the Bluetooth module to the micro controller are shown in the documentation.
Phone App
The R/C car connects via Bluetooth to your cell phone. After loading the app on your phone and connecting you can control the car either with the tilt sensor, vioce commands or buttons in the car app. to communicate. At the current time only Android is supported. The MIT 2 App inventor (free) was used to create the Bluetooth Controlling Application(BCA) . The BCA is open source so it can be downloaded and modified.
