From the Forums: J-Bot Robot Rover controlled by Arduino Uno and v2 motor shield

Rich O J Robot Rover

Rich_O shared an Arduino robotics project he has been working on for a while on the Adafruit Forums — and has shared code he tuned for autonomous roving!

I wanted to share the learning project I have been working on to program the Arduino and control a robot.

I purchased the J-Bot rover chassis (4 wheel / 4 motor DFROBOT ROB003), the (((Ping ultrasonic range finder, Standard RC servo (HS-311), Arduino Uno and the Adafruit V2 motor controller. I initially attempted this project with the Leonardo but It was to difficult for me to use the USB interface with the Leo’s virtual USB port. I used the 5 AA battery holder (fitted inside the rover between the motors) and batteries to power the motors and a 6 AA batteries to power the Arduino Uno and servo.

My next step is to add remote control via integration with my onboard Raspi via WiFi and the MobaXterm remote terminal.
