Hi all, thanks for taking the time to read my questions and any help you are able to offer. I recently finished my first semester of Electrical Engineering and per my professors recommendations and my fascination with the topics thus far, I have decided to start messing around with arduinos and trying to learn some programming languages. Currently I am studying Python in my down time between semesters but after a few weeks of experimentation with the Arduino I bought, it seems like C/C++ will definitely be next up.
I want to try and build a simple rc car or robot that can be controlled either from my computer or separate controller, doesn't really matter. I am confused as to the parts I will need. Its seems as though there might be several different angles to the same goal but as I already have a wireless sd shield and motor shield I would like to use those for my project. If I am understanding things correctly, I think I will need another arduino and wireless sd shield plus 2 xbee antennas.
What is the typical or most common setup of a rc car or wireless robot? Would you have an Arduino and wireless sd shield plus 1 xbee on your pc/controller side of the robot and than another arduino, wireless sd shield, motor shield and the other xbee on the actual robot side?
