Assemble Kuman Arduino Robot Car KIT SM11 Step 9: Installing The HC-06 Bluetooth Module

Few weeks ago I received a Cool Arduino Robot Car SM11 KIT from the great folks at Kuman generously donated for the Visuino development :-).

I already posted:
Unboxing video
Step 1: Installing the Motors and Attaching the Wheels
Step 2: Installing The Boards And Sensors
Step 3: Assemble the Ultrasonic Ranger mount, and install the Ultrasonic Ranger on it
Step 4: Installing the Servo, the Ultrasonic Ranger, and the Battery Box
Step 5: Connecting the Motor Driver Board and the Battery Box Cables
Step 6: Connecting the Sensors, Servo, Buzzer, Button, and Turn Signal LEDs to the Sensor Shield on top of the Arduino UNO
Step 7: Installing The LED Lights and Turn Signals
Step 8: Installing The Infrared Remote Receiver

And here is the 9th assembly video - Installing The HC-06 Bluetooth Module:


I am preparing the rest of the Assembly videos and will post them in the following days.
I am also looking into what is the best way to map the Robot functionality in Visuino .
After that I will try to make some Visuino tutorials for the Robot.

Cheers,

Hello Boian, I am assembling this kit and when it comes to putting the programming when the device starts the light number 13 of the shield stills on that indicates that it is in bluethooth mode. Would not it have to start in IR mode? And nothing works either.
I think that the problem is in the programming I put the "Comprehensive_Experiment" that comes from disk source.
Can you help me?

Hi Ebotella Baeza,

Thank you!
I have not tried any of the code that comes on the Disk. I am programming it only myself with Visuino. Plan to post tutorial on the best way to reconnect the motor driver so you can use PWM to control the speed on both motor when using the Servo and the IR Receiver. In their design teh servo and the IR Receiver both disable PWM on one of the motors :-( . Should be easy to fix, but just need to find few H to experiment and record the changes.
Otherwise when programming with Visuino, it all works great so far.

Cheers,
Boian
