I wrote an application for Android OS based devices to control the uXbot robot remotelly via Bluetooth. This has been my first experience with Android development and, even though the UI creation isn’t very straightforward, the rest of the features such as Bluetooth discovering, pairing or sensor data acquisition have been fairly easy.
- Inertial control using device accelerometer
- Manual control using a Joystick widget (from https://code.google.com/p/mobile-anarchy-widgets/)
- Adjustable speed
- Bluetooth SPP connection
I’ll be uploading some videos in the next few days and, when it’s a little bit more tested, I’ll be glad to publish the sources so that anyone can add new features (IR sensor readings, battery voltage, firmware uploading using uXbot internal bluetooth bootloader,…).
