My name is Yusif and I am an electrical engineering student at the Polytechnic Institute of NYU where I am on my schools NASA Lunabotics Team. The aim of the project is to create a autonomous or teleoperated excavator along specifications that mimic a lunar environment.
My part of the project is the controls interface and we have opted to use an Arduino/Wifly shield to communicate with the lunabot. I have a couple of sample codes that show how to connect the Wifly shield to a network but very little instruction on where to go from there. Can anyone recommend an example or a starting point for how to begin incorporating an analog joystick and it's corresponding readings to be received by the Wifly shield? I was initially planning on reading the joystick pins with a second Arduino, if someone could recommend how to achieve this I would be very grateful.
In advance I apologize if I am coming off vague or for any other shortcomings. This is my first post but I certainly hope it will not be the last.
Thanks in advance, Yusif Nurizade
