Wireless ROBOTBluetooth is widely used for various communication devices today including cell phones,headsets, and computer mice and keyboards. Bluetooth is a wireless communication protocol thatuses radio frequencies in the 2.4GHz range to exchange data over short distances from fixed andmobile devices.· This allows electronic devices that formally had to be connected via cables(such as computers, cell phones, headsets, keyboards, mice, printers and PDAs) to be connectedwirelessly on one secure Bluetooth network. Bluetooth devices communicate through what’sknown as a PAN (Personal Area Network), in which only Bluetooth devices that you haveenabled can communicate. This prevents other Bluetooth devices in the area from interferingwith your network. However, say you want to use a lot of Bluetooth devices on one network,how can it differentiate each connection? Basically, each PAN consists of many differentfrequencies that each device can communicate on; and in order to avoid interference frommultiple devices, each device “hops” to a new frequency many times per second. This paper willdiscuss the team effort of the college students and a high school student for the design andimplementation of an Embedded System based on Basic Stamp2 Parallax Microcontroller towirelessly control the Boe-Bot’s movements through a PC using the Easy Bluetooth Module.The paper will also explore the Programming of Parallax microcontroller, Interfacing ofBluetooth and Boe-Bot, and Design/development of the base for the robot using the 3D modelingsoftware.
