 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi all,

I am doing a rather interesting project whereby I will control a scale model wheel chair by using brain waves.
I am analyzing these brainwaves in MATLAB and based on what the analysis output is, I need to send a command from MATLAB through Bluetooth to an Arduino board in order to control servo motors.

Now I have been mostly reading up on BLUESMiRF and the HC-05 modules, but I am open to suggestion.
Also, would an UNO board be applicable or should I use the ArduinoBT board?

My main concerns are whether the bluetooth modules will be able to receive the data from MATLAB.
I do not have much experience at Arduino at all so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Why bluetooth? Does it even have the range (unspecified) that you are looking for?

Bluetooth as with class 2, 10 meters is more than enough for my application.
I decided on bluetooth as I was told it is the simplest way of making a wireless connection to the arduino.
My scale model wheel chair will in fact move around

I disagree. XBees are simpler.
