Im fairly new to arduino but I am loving what I see so far and its absolutely amazing. I have a general question before I get in too deep that Im hoping will generate some suggestions.
Lets say I create a mini vehicle something like this http://www.instructables.com/id/Carduino-A-simple-Arduino-robotics-platform-with-/?ALLSTEPS
The Adruino board is too big for what I would like to create, so what would be my options? Once I program everything is there a way to transfer my code to a smaller board or what are some ways to take the information from the Arduino to end product? Would I need to get a smaller custom card made (if so how would I get the information transferred). Im open to any and all suggestions. Its tough being new and not having the experience needed.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
