Facile à utiliser

Nous avons travaillé sur des solutions pour les enfants ayant des besoins spéciaux. Notre objectif est de les rendre plus mobiles, mais le parent a besoin d'une télécommande pour les guider parfois. La combinaison de la télécommande, de l’uno et du bouclier PS2 est un excellent ajout à notre conversion d’un objet sauvage Mattel en un fauteuil roulant amusant et utile.


Works exactly as intended.

easy way to wirelessly control electronic components via arduino

I got this to provide wireless control via an arduino uno for a relay board to control linear actuators and control a motors speed via a digital potentiometer. The shield made it as easy to provide wireless input as it was to get wired input directly from the arduino's pins. The only part that was a little tricky was that when analog joystick data was requested when the controller wasn't attached, it would return 255, which is what one gets pulling the joystick all the way down (X axis) or to the right (Y axis). I recommend displaying data on the serial line display while debugging. Although the manual called for using Cytron's PS2 controllers, I found that generic ones I bought off eBay worked fine.


thanks.. this is good componen , great

Easy to use

We have been working on solutions for special needs children. Our focus is to make them more mobile but the parent needs a remote to help guide them at times. The combination of the remote, uno and PS2 shield is a great add to our conversion of a Mattel wild thing into a fun and useful wheel chair.
