Our devices are a bluetooth remote controller and a remote-controlled omnidirectional loader. The vehicle functions are programmed through two PICs on the vehicle and another two PICs inside the controller. It features a double jointed shoveling arm designed to raise and lower to pick up and drop various loads (ex: sand or a flower). It uses “mecanum” wheels to achieve omni-directional driving. These wheels are controlled using a modified skid-steer system that allows for diagonal and left-right movement while the vehicle stays facing in the same direction. The pair of LED headlights can turn on either by a switch on the controller or by a photoresistor if the room darkens enough. Backup lights and a buzzer turn on when the vehicle has wheels that are moving backwards. The remote and vehicle communicate via bluetooth modules, allowing the user to operate the vehicle wirelessly.
