Add infrared communication and control to your Boe-Bot robot.
This 175-page Stamps in Class textbook focuses on adding infrared communication and control to your Boe-Bot Robot. You can control the Boe-Bot in a game-controller style, remotely set roaming speed and distance, combine remote control and autonomous roaming functions, and remotely select autonomous roaming modes. New programming techniques introduce designing user interfaces and menu systems. The final project makes your BASIC Stamp 2 microcontroller an IR remote command sequence interpreter for a remotely programmable Boe-Bot.
This book does not include a Boe-Bot or parts. You must purchase the Boe-Bot Robot Kit separately. This textbook is intended as a continuation from the Robotics with the Boe-Bot textbook in that kit.
If you don't have a universal remote control, a 38 kHz IR receiver and a 220 Ohm resistor on hand, purchase the IR Remote Parts Kit.
