Robotics Training LESSON 13: Program Speed of the Elegoo Smart Car with Infrared (IR) Remote

In this lesson we show you how to program the speed of the Elegoo Smart Car version 3 using the infrared (IR) remote control. We show how this is similar to inputing desired distance, taught in Lesson 12. If you want to play along at home, you can pick up your gear HERE. For your convenience, we include the code developed in the video below.


Robotics Training LESSON 12: Programming Travel Distance with Infrared (IR) Remote

In this lesson we show how to use the Infrared (IR) Remote to program the Elegoo Smart Car. We use the remote to specify the distance in feet we want the robot car to travel.  (If you guys want to play along at home, you can pick up your robot car HERE.)


ARDUINO TUTORIAL 68: Make a Remote Controlled RGB LED with Brightness and Color Control

This is our Remote Controlled RGB LED

In this lesson we take you through step-by-step instructions on creating a remotely controlled RGB LED.  This is the solution to the Homework Assignment given in Tutorial 68. It is important for you to try and complete this on your own before looking at my solutions.

We are building this with parts from our Elegoo Kit , and our actual build is using an Arduino Nano, which allows the project to be built on a single breadboard. You can get the neat jumper wires HERE.

This video steps you through our build.

Below is the code we developed in this video.

Arduino Tutorial 66: Controlling DC Motor, Speed and Direction with a Remote

Circuit for IR Remote Control of DC Motor

In this lesson we develop a project that allow Remote Control of the speed and direction of a DC Motor. We use an Arduino Nano, and components from the Elegoo Kit. Also, to facilitate a clean build, we use Straight Jumper Wires.

The motor is connected according to this schematic:

Connection Diagram for a DC Motor Controller using the L293 Control Chip

Also, the remote control receiver is connected as follows: R on Remote to 5V, G on Remote to Ground, and Y on the Remote to Arduino Digital Pin 9. Go back and check out Tutorial 65 if you need more details on the Remote Module Connections.

In this video we will take you step by step through the build and coding for the project.

The code below is the software we developed in the video.
