Making a radio controlled tank – Part 2 – PCBs

With the mechanics somewhat decided on, the control circuitry was the next on the list. After ‘mastering’ radio control, temperature sensing and internet connectivity, I was pretty well versed with the Arduino ecosphere, and felt pretty comfortable making my own PCBs with the help of OSHPark. I felt the tank needed multiple separate boards, not only […]

CRC8 – Arduino and PHP implementation

For my tank project, I’ll be sending parameters over radio to control the motors so the data packets should be checked to see if they’re valid or if the transmission was corrupted. This is a widely used concept in computing – almost every transaction comes with a checksum which lets you know whether the data that […]
