Chapter 9. Bluetooth Low Energy Mobile Robot

In this chapter, we are going to use most of the concepts we have learned throughout the book to control a mobile robot via an Android app. The robot will have two motors that we can control, and also an ultrasonic sensor in the front so that it can detect obstacles. The robot will also have a BLE chip so that it can receive commands from the Android app.

  • Go forward
  • Go backward
  • Turn left
  • Turn right
  • Display the connection status to the robot

The following will be the major takeaways from this chapter:

  • Building a mobile robot based on the Arduino platform
  • Connecting a BLE module to the Arduino robot
  • Building an Android ...
