This is the first version, still BETA, of this simple app. Further information on how to use it here!:
This app serves as a remote control of a wheeled robot. It allows to send movement orders to your robot if it is correctly configured. This app sends a text string containing movement orders, via Bluetooth, to a paired device. You can give 4 orders: On/off, Speed magnitude, direction and turn. It is specialy created to control holonomic platforms. Like this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJlosj9IuDo
Obviously, you must create the receiver application + decode & process the transmitted data in the proper way.
To make the system work, you must pair the 2 bluetooth devices, set an SPP connection between them, execute this app in the android device and execute your own receiver application in the other end. It sounds difficult but it is not! In my blog, I provide an example of an Arduino sketch able to do this.
