Arduino enthusiasts, hobbyists and makers looking to control their projects from afar. May be interested in a new customisable wireless remote control designed by Schindler Technologies for the Arduino platform. Launched via Kickstarter this week the project allows you to easily control your projects such as a drone, remote control car, speakers or anything else your imagination can build.
The customisable wireless remote control has been designed to be used with the popular NRF24l01+ (a 2.4GHz RF transceiver, RF synthesiser, and radio function manager) modules that are included with the purchase of a Pilot Remote Control. Simply connect the extra NRF module to any existing or new Arduino project. “Instantaneously, you will have wireless communication with your projects from up to 5,000 feet away! This remote control comes with two joysticks, an NRF header, 2 user programmable push buttons, an LCD header, and standard Arduino pinouts to add whatever else your project desires.”
Schindler Technologies explain more about the hardware they have created and its features. “The Pilot Wireless Remote Control has many amazing features that will make it perfect for your specific project needs. The Pilot RC has a range of 100 meters (300 feet) with the standard NRF modules. If this proves too weak for your needs, then easily push the range up to 1500 meters (5000 ft) with the NRF+ modules. These modules are capable of up to 2 Mbps communication rate, and has a incredibly low latency, making controlling high performance projects a breeze.”
“It comes with an 8 Pin female header that is used to interface with the NRF chip, a 16 pin header to interface with the LCD display, and a 14 pin header to connect any additional items you want! Like Bluetooth, WiFi, or even a buzzer! Add an accelerometer for additional motion control, or whatever else you can think of! The 14 pin user header has Serial, SPI, and I2C communication available for whatever your projects needs. ”
