Help with controlling robot using Bluetooth

Mon Feb 26, 2018 2:23 pm

Hi,
I purchased a DiddyBorg robot and mounted a Raspberry Pi control card Pi 3. I was able to link the controller up to my laptop and was able to get the robot to move left/right Backwards/forward.
I wanted to become more ambitious and control the robot using the Bluetooth option in Pi 3 from my Android phone.
I quickly realised that this was out of my depth. Has any develop an App for an Android phone that would allow me to control the robot wireless using Bluetooth?

Blue Dot may be what you are looking for. I haven't used it. The author appears on this forum from time to time.
