Hi Guys, Just new here...  :smiley-sweat: don't know if i posted this in the right forum topic so i'm open to any corrections and guidance if you can give me  XD...

I'm in my last year in Computer Engineering and one of my project proposals is the Smartphone controlled Electric Fan.
The idea is basically that i have control over the movement of the electric fan, if I want it to face left or if I want it to face right and so forth.

I have a Samsung GT-15530 phone. This is what i plan to use for this project.
I plan on making a program that can be installed into the phone, for Android of course.]
The program displays the controls to the fan.

Another function i want to put into this is that the electric fan will be able to track where the phone is (and the owner of the phone is as well) and automatically face itself towards the direction of where the phone(owner) is.


So basically:
The program displays - Left Button, Right Button, and Automatic Follow Button
Wireless medium - Bluetooth

so the question:

Can I do this on a Arduino?

Of course you can. except in order to manage the follow function both your phone and arduino will need to be equipped with some good GPS sensors to be so accurate. another approach could be to use the compass on your phone, and supply the arduino with one as well, and have the fan point in the same direction as the phone.
