Hi, i´m josé and i created an Light follower Robot -> http://josemdvdf.blogspot.com.br/2012/05/tutorial-arduino-robo-seguidor-de-luz.html

Now, i´d like to control the robot using wireless. Does anyone know that I can use ?

thx.

Not with that vague description. What, exactly, do you want to control? Given what input on one end? Over what range? How quickly?

The relationship between an autonomous light seeking robot and you "controlling" it escapes me.

PaulS ... i´d like to change the controller.

So, i will remove the LDR and imput an controller, for exemple Bluetooth or GPRS or Another. The problem is that, i dont know how is the best or easier.

Do you have any idea ?

Thx

Bluetooth has pros and cons. Pro is that it is cheap. Cons include distance - typically 10 meters/30 feet - and success stories seem to be a bit difficult to come by.

GPRS? Possible, but not cheap, and I'm not sure that feedback is possible.

Others include XBee (what I'd use), WiFi, 433 and 355 MHz RF, etc. Cost, range, volume of data to be sent, need to receive data, and criticality of lost data are all things to be weighed.

hi,

Have a look around here for using RC equipment with arduino -

My cars run 200 meters away at 40km/h plus.
