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 ...
