First is to get all the components together. This is all based on the arduino stackable shields and the android smartphone platform.
The motor shield I got by NGC Electronics needs a seperate power supply. The power supply board I used consists basically of a basic LM 317 voltage regulator with a variable resistor, and one other resistor. This creates a voltage dividor so i can use this power supply circuit to power a motor at anywhere from 0-5 volts.
More instructions to follow. I will probably utilize links when there are other instructions set out on the internet. For example, a lot of my work here is very similar to what Vince at Vision and Robotics has done (see link above in links section.) However the specific things I did with my power supply and the android and google platforms I will explain in the instructions and details sections as I complete more.
