It is not easy starting any major technical development area, and Android development is no exception. There are a lot of resources to query, but there really is no one but yourself to try and figure things out. Query your problem on Google Search and you’ll likely end up at StackOverflow.com. While there are answers, they might not answer your question. You try, fail, and then try something else. Here are some tips I learned.
Automonous Bot: Arduino, Ardumoto board, and the Dagu Magician Chassis
Late am I with this posting, but life gets in the way and takes over. The Little Weed wanted to delve into robotics, so we bought an Arduino Uno and the Dagu Magician Chassis. This chassis is a robot platform for a three wheeled vehicle, complete with two wheels and two motors, a single ball caster, and all the nuts and bolts to put it together. Programming of the robot is done with the Arduino IDE or in Eclipse. This posting steps you through our experience putting together this robot platform.
