This tutorial helps you build your own 2 Wheel RC car and control it using your Smartphone.

Note: if this is your first time dealing with 1Sheeld we recommend you start with the getting started tutorial to know how to use it.

Step 1: Gather your materials

  • 2 Wheel bot here
  • Arduino UNO
  • 1Sheeld
  • Seeed Studio Motor shield
  • Android Smartphone
  • 4AA batteries
  • Extra jumpers







Step 2: Hardware Implementation

Adjust Seeed’s motor shield on Arduino.

Solder 4 wires each two to each motor and then connect them to the output of the motor shield 1st motor with out1/out2 & 2nd motor with out3/out4.

Adjust 1Sheeld above the motor shield.

Place the 4 AA batteries in the battery holder.

step 3: Uploading the code

Now it’s time to plug Arduino to your PC/Laptop using the USB cable and then switch 1Sheeld to the upload mode and upload the code “sketch” using CodeBender after that return the switch back to the communication mode.

Step 4: Powering up the System

The two wires coming out from the battery holder are the 5V “red” and GND “black” connect them to the motor shield 5V to the “+” sign and GND to the “-” sign.

step 5: Connect 1Sheeld

Open the application in your smartphone and then press scan then your 1Sheeld number will appear press the number to connect.
