The aim of this project is to build a vehicle that can be controlled by using wireless MEMS (Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems) based accelerometer. This consists of a remote control that wirelessly transmits data using RF technology to the remote vehicle to move in any direction. The accelerometer will be mounted on a steering plate (remote control), such that if the steering plate leans in some direction then the robot vehicle moves in that direction.
If the user wants to move the robot forward he can lean the steering plate forward and backward for reverse. To turn left or right user need to turn the steering plate toward left or right respectively.
The major building blocks of this project are:
- Two Microcontroller Mother Boards with regulated power supply.
- 433MHz RF Transmitter and Receiver Modules.
- Accelerometer Sensor Module.
- Robot Vehicle with two PWM controlled DC Motors.
