How to make a Arduino Bluetooth Controlled Car ?

How to make a Bluetooth control car?

1. So what is basically the Bluetooth control car?

Bluetooth control car basically means a car which is controlled by your Android phones Bluetooth and basically taping the buttons of an Android app you can control a car. And for the making cost of the card is very much small then you can buy it from the online or in the shop which you can afford. You don’t need a controller for controlling the car your phone is almost everything for controlling it. Suppose you want to turn the speed to the max level so you can also do it by your Android by turning up its speed by buttons to 75% to 100% or anything else so it is the main thing and you can do it as well by a simple app. You don’t have to do coding for this. You can get the app in the Play Store and I will give the courts to you which you can upload to your Arduino and then the everything alright and you can run your car very smoothly.

2. The things you need are

  1. Arduino Uno R3 board
  2.  HC-05 Bluetooth module
  3.  L298N Motor Driver
  4.  Some connecting words
  5.  Gear Motors 300RPM
  6.  An android device from which you can control your car
  7.  Batteries

[For the battery version I am using a lead acid battery and you can also use some Lithium polymer or Lithium-ion batteries in which you are comfortable. For my case the lead acid batteries as they are cheap and also give the maximum power which is 4 volt so I’m using two of them in series so I will get about 8 volts Max so, you can also use 9-volt battery also for the power up it.]

**Things you must have to remember during making this car

1. Remove the RX and TX pin from the Arduino while uploading the codes otherwise, the codes will not be uploaded to your microcontroller.

2. Always check one more time when you were connecting your battery’s ground and 12 volts positive or 9 volts positive which you are using otherwise if you make a mistake then your motor driver will stop working or been damaged by the battery’s opposite polarity.

3. You can use two Motors in parallel for my case I have used two Motors in series so in that case, my motor is 6 volt each show in series connection total voltage will be 12 volts.

**** If you use 12-volt Motors then you can also connect to parallel simple early but don’t forget to check the parallel Motors and also running in the same direction or not otherwise the car will not run.

**** If you are new to Bluetooth module then you have to know that when the Bluetooth is connected to the phone then the password will be 1234 or 0000.

 

 

#### **** For better understanding I will suggest you see my video on YouTube but you have to see part 1 and part 2 separately.
