I know to wire the car's GND to the arduino's GND but how do I hook up the other things so that I can make it go forward, backward, left and right?
Or could I wire the H bridge from the circuit board itself?
Do you know where on the circuit board are the connections to the H bridge?What does the circuit board do? Is it the complete radio receiver and controller all in one?What are you planning to use the Arduino for? You used the word "anonymous" in your first post, but perhaps you mean "autonomous"? Will the Arduino replace the radio receiver and control the car as a robot? If so you will also need to control steering and, presumably, detect the car's position.Quote from: 1EAS1 on Apr 20, 2013, 02:08 pmOr could I wire the H bridge from the circuit board itself?
Yes sorry I meant autonomous;) The circuit board transmits the radio signal from the controller to control to servos, 1 at the top is to turn the wheels and the bottom one is to make it go forward and backwards. I don't care for the remote controller, I want to ditch it and just use it with the arduino and make a program to automatically do a preprogrammed course. I'm planning to use the arduino to just tell the motors where to go with a preprogrammed track. I plan to use the car as a robot and for the steering I can add a second motor in the code and create custom turns to do.
QuoteAre you going to measure the time (preset delay) in which the car turns or use an encoder to track the distance of how far the car goes to then decided when to turn?Im going to measure the time(pre-set delay) instead of an encoder
