Robotics Training LESSON 11: Controlling the Elegoo Smart Car With IR Remote

In this lesson we show how you can control a robot with an IR remote. We program the Elegoo Smart Car version 3.0 to respond to  commands to the remote to go forward, backward, left and right.


Robotics Training LESSON 10: Using the Infrared (IR) Remote to Control Robot

In this lesson we show how to use the IR remote in the Elegoo Smart Car to send signals to the robot. The IR remote sends IR signals to the IR detector on the Electronic Shield sitting on top of the Smart Car. In this lesson we show how to install the IR library, and how to write code to send and detect IR signals. The code we develop in today’s lesson is included below for your convenience.


Robotics Training LESSON 8: Setting Speed of the Smart Car

In this lesson we show how to program the speed of the Elegoo Smart Car Version 3.0 using the Infrared (IR) remote control. We take you through the process of using the remote step-by-step, and for your convenience we include the code below. If you want to play along at home, you can pick up your gear HERE.


Robotics Training LESSON 7: Calibrating the Smart Car for Distance and Speed

In this lesson we show how to program the Elegoo Smart car to operate with user defined speed and distance. This allows programming by simply stacking simple pre-defined functions. If you want to play along at home, you can get the hardware I am using in this series HERE.


Robotics Training LESSON 6: Controlling DC Motor Speed with the L298N

In this video lesson we see how the speed of the Robot Car can be changed by doing analogWrite commands to the Enable pins on the L298N DC motor controllers. The code below presents the results we developed in the video.
