Topic: RC Channels To L293 Motor Driver/Dual H Bridge (Read 2886 times) previous topic - next topic

Hi,
   I have just posted a new topic to the RC Arduino blog, this one deals with something rarely covered - calibrating your Arduino project to your transmitters RC Signals. Its also finishes with the full code used in a simple RC Robot previously posted on the blog.



In addition to reading the RC Channels and providing a 'one touch' calibration the code allows a two channel RC Transmitter with throttle and steering channels to control a tracked robot with only two motors and no steering channel.

Original post with short demonstration video -

Latest post with explanation of calibration and control code, plus the fully commented code !

The control is very intuitive - full forwards and reverse proportional control, proportional steering in both forwards and reverse and rotation on the spot at idle.

Enjoy

Would the Exhibition / Gallery forum be a more appropriate place for this thread?

Hi,

I did consider that, but thought that the exhibition/gallery is more for projects that you are proud of rather than what is more or less a 'how to' post on a simple two day project. The main point of the post relates to the rarely covered topic of calibrating projects with RC Equipment, not really an exhibition topic imho.
