The project , mostly software, aims to create a better experience on "non-intelligent" vehicles. In this case a tank.
Hardware modification is needed, but this will result in:
- Customized controls
- Fine precision movement
- Simulated inertia
I am still waiting for some key components aka ESP-12 modules and H-Bridges to pack the creation, at the moment the functionality is demonstrated on breadboard having the tank engines controlled by 2 N-gate transistors, resulting on the missing reverse and the severe inability to move further away.
But do not fear! The code is kind of complete.
If I do have certain positive feedbacks on this, I could move on to a 1:16 tank replica, where i could really express the microprocessor potential by simulating a 30-ton machine inertia.
What could be possible if I include an IR blaster and IR receivers?
