During the isolation period caused by Corona, I was playing around with Arduino as a quite small hobby in my free time to create a simple robot that is being controlled by Android. 🙂
The robot uses an Arduino and a Motor Shield to control the motors, but since I am an Android developer, I wanted to somehow make use of Android to control it. 📱🤖
The concept is simple: There is an Android phone on the robot which is connected to the Arduino via a Bluetooth cable and sends commands to Arduino to control the motors.
Because of that, I had to test the USB connection between the Android phone and the Arduino, so I created a simple terminal to achieve this. But the terminal can be used for many more purposes than testing this robot, so I decided to publish it as an open-source project on GitHub and also a free app on Google Play Store:
The robot itself, is still under construction 🚧 🔨 and I will probably send a photo of it when it is done, but until then, please feel free to use the new Terminal and I am looking forward to receiving your feedback. 😉
