In the last couple of weeks some interesting new toys I ordered arrived. First, two MRF24J40MA wireless transceivers. I actually had them lying around for a while now, but I wanted to wait until the GPS receiver arrived as well before I start playing with them.
Over the last couple of days I worked on the basics to use my Android powered mobile phone as a remote control for my R/C boat. The first test covers reading the motion sensors of the phone (accelerometer specifically) and visualizing it. The result can be seen in this video:
I plan to steer the boat as one would control a vehicle in a game on the phone.
