Where a cable can´t, a Bluetooth can

Keyboard, display, sensor or other device can be connected by means of Bluetooth modules even without cables. Many times, it´s more practical to have devices interconnected wirelessly. Whether we need a simpler transfer of values from some sensor or a more complicated data communication between two devices, Bluetooth modules will manage it without a long development. Bluetooth technology with their range of ...

Simple Ham Radio Bluetooth Interface

Ham radio is a popular hobby and service in which a licensed amateur radio operator explores communications equipment. Typical ham radios do not have bluetooth support, which may be hassle for some. None of the transceiver manufacturers are providing a wireless interface. However, with this ham radio bluetooth interface, communicating and listening to other entity would be easier. The device uses Bluetooth ...

DIY Bluetooth RC Car

Last year I started a project to convert my (then) four-year old’s busted Radio Controlled (RC) car into Bluetooth controlled one which could be driven using a smart phone or tablet. The original car, modeled after a “Fast and Furious” Nissan Silvia, was a pretty basic RC with 2-channel on-off (non-proportional) style controls, and while Micah enjoyed playing with it I thought it might be nice to pimp it ou ...

SL4A Bluetooth Controller

Having had a bit of an unproductive Easter break I think it’s about time I got back to posting the concluding details of how the transmitter for the Bluetooth RC was implemented. I built the PIC-based motor and servo controller before acquiring the BlueSMiRF module so initially I wrote the following simple Python script based on the PyGame module to control the board via the direct (wired) serial connection ...

Object Detecting Android Mobile Phone Controlled Bluetooth Robot Using PIC Microcontroller 16F877A

Last time we had a project on Arduino robots with Bluetooth and Android, and in that one our readers Mr. Paul asked how he can make an obstacle avoidance robot. So today I came up with another engineering project for electronics and communication students, Android and Bluetooth controlled robot using PIC Microcontroller with object detecting capability. After installing MikroElectron’s Robot Control App fro ...
