Topic: Dual functionality: self-driving/bluetooth controlled car (Read 229 times) previous topic - next topic


Hey everyone,

I am currently plowing ahead with an Arduino UNO project the feasibility of which I am unsure of at the moment.

I am trying to make a remote controlled car capable of  two functions: autonomous mode using two VL53L0X Time of Flight Micro-LIDAR Distance Sensors (https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-vl53l0x-micro-lidar-distance-sensor-breakout/overview) for peripheral vision and a Ultrasonic Sensor HC-SR04 for straight ahead distance sensing, and bluetooth control with a Bluefruit LE SPI Friend (https://learn.adafruit.com/introducing-the-adafruit-bluefruit-spi-breakout/introduction). The idea being a user can switch between the two modes.

I started out using two Sharp IR distance sensors but decided to opt for the ToF sensors due to their accuracy, speed, and compact size.

This is my first ever Arduino Project and I wonder if anyone has attempted this type of thing before and what resources might be available to me.
