new project - SRV-1 controller on an R/C tank base
Look what UPS brought today ...
Wonder what they look like inside ?
Seems like there's plenty of room for an SRV-1 controller ...
Looks pretty simple to interface to the tank track drive motors. However, we'll need to add 2 H-bridge interfaces for the turret pan/tilt. Also, we need to see what kind of signal is required to fire the Airsoft gun. Probably a simple NPN transistor interface.
Check back to see how we're doing with the interface task, though we'll need to figure out where to mount the camera. Seems like it should go on the turret, though we might need to add some protection from hostile fire.
Note that we have 2 of these things ... I wonder how we should use them ???
