View Full Version : Controlling 2 boe bots with remotes, does anyone know how to find diff frequenc

Need help figuring out how to run 2 different boe bots, each with their own remotes. Believe they just need different frequencies, and we have the core program from the IR book.. http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/jumpin.gif

I haven't had much luck with eliminating IR remote crosstalk. When I want two remote controlled robots, I usually use RF modules to control one, and the IR remote to control the other. To make the two robots equivalent, I measure the average delay between servo pulses on the IR controlled bot, and add pauses between PULSOUT commands to the RF controlled bot code.

Here is a link to documentation on how to make my favorite Boe-Bot controller. It's the one I use along with the IR remote at demonstrations and trade shows:

This is one of many cool projects documented on the Stamps in Class "Mini Projects" (http://forums.parallax.com/showthread.php?p=560570) page.

Thanks Andy, i'll see what i can do, still hoping to use the remotes, but we'll see what happens!
