5. Remote Control

In this project, you will learn how to control the Zeus Car with the remote control.



How to do?

  1. The ESP32-CAM and the Arduino board share the same RX (receive) and TX (transmit) pins. So, when you’re uploading code, you’ll need to first disconnect the ESP32-CAM to avoid any conflicts or potential issues.

  2. Open the 5_remote_control.ino file under the path of zeus-car-main\examples\5_remote_control.

  3. After the code is uploaded successfully, turn the power switch to ON to start the Zeus Car.

  4. Then use the 1~9 on the remote control to control the car in 8 directions.

  5. After pressing a key, the Zeus Car will keep moving until you press ir_power or the number key 5.

  6. When you press ir_return once, the car will rotate counterclockwise with the body as the center and will stop until you press ir_power or the number key 5.

  7. Similarly, pressing ir_usd once will make the car rotate clockwise, and then it will stop until you press ir_power or the number key 5.
