This project gives you the basic ideas for making a robot using Amarino and Arduino.
You can control your robot with Android Smart Phone. You can easily move the robot forward, backward and rotate in both clockwise and anticlockwise directions.It is one of the easiest methods of building a robot.
This project has been derived from the book ” Arduino + Android Projects for the Evil Genius: Control Arduino with Your Smartphone or Tablet “, written by Simon Monk.
