Bluetooth controlled bot

Post by CrimsonZA » Sun Aug 03, 2014 6:48 am

Hey everyone.

So I got my Micropython board a few weeks ago and of course got pretty excited about that.
This is the first micro controller I've ever used.

Being a novice at Python as well but at least quite familiar with using it, it's quite the child's play controlling the LED's, Servos's and the Accelerometer on the board. Combining them to work together is also easy enough making the Accelerometer control a Servo and lighting up different LED's deepening on the axis and orientation.

So now I've got some motors and a Bluetooth module(
And they seem out of my league.
The plan is to control the motors from another Bluetooth device(iPhone/Mac).

I'll be using tracks instead of wheels so the motors will need to swap or move independently, goes without saying.

I hope you guys will be able to help me out and whoever is in the same boat as me to find this useful too.
