Remote control car system based on Arduino, eRIC4 module and accelerometer LIS35DE.
Simple text commands are sent, initially from a PC serial port to an eRIC4 which then transmits them to a second remote eRIC4 and then hence onto an Arduino Nano controller.
The Arduino interprets these commands and drives a pair of motors via a motor shield to control the speed and direction of the 'buggy'.
In a further development commands are created by an accelerometer connected to an Arduino Mega via I2C allowing control of the buggy by intuitive hand movements.
The eRIC radio transceiver module is a complete System-on-Chip device that provides an intelligent radio sub-system that combines a high performance RF transceiver, RF band pass filters (BPF), an MSP430 microcontroller, 32Kb flash memory, non-volatile flash storage, temperature sensor, and a low drop voltage regulator.
The device operates on the International licence exempt Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) radio bands.
The Arduino controllers connect to the eRIC4 modules via serial port.
