Java leJOS Project: RC Car managed by leJOS and Lattebox NXTe/LSC
Last Update: 09/09/2008
This is my first serious project with leJOS, the development a software to manage a RC Car. This project has the following subprojects:
Basically, this project tries to manage any RC Car which you can purchase in your city using a NXT brick and a Lattebox NXTe. NXTe allowed me to control RC Servos and DC Motors easily. Currently I can go forward and backward. leJOS project has worked so hard to improve garbaje collector, to manage with NXT's CPU complex Java Programs.
Currently I am working in the following tasks:
Many thanks to Takashi Chikamasa because he debugged Lattebox I2C Calls and Yu Sog because he design and develop the product Lattebox NXTe Kit and finally my leJOS friends: Brian Bagnall, Lawrie Griffiths and Andy Gloomy which helped me to learn I2C protocol.
I have tested the new Steering system controlled by RC Controller 2.
Test bluetooth connections with long range distances
Testing a preliminar autonomous subsystem.
Testing preliminar autonomous system with new US Grid with 2 US Sensors. The structure crashed by the vibrations.
Photos I have a gallery in Google Picassa with details about the project. I hope that you like it.
