The Soccer Game
Each team has one robot car on the field. A colored flag is attached to each robot car so that it is easy to see if it belongs to the red team or blue team. The game is played on a smooth wooden surface that is painted to look like a soccer field. There is a net on both ends of the field for the goal. The robot cars try to score points by pushing the ball into the opponent's net.
Remote Control from Tablet
The robot cars are controlled from the players' iPads using the EZ App Lynx app. EZ App Lynx is a smartphone/tablet application that pairs with a PIC® MCU over Bluetooth® and allows the PIC® MCUs to control the appearance and control of the GUI on the smartphone/tablet. This allows PIC® MCU developers an easy way to deploy sensors or controllers that can be controlled from a smartphone/tablet over Bluetooth®. Since the PIC® MCU controls all aspects of the GUI, the user only needs to install one smartphone/tablet application that works across a broad variety of devices.
This app requires a Bluetooth® connection to a PIC® MCU using the CCS C Compiler with the EZ App Lynx library. For more information on the application and where to download it, go to: http://www.ccsinfo.com/ezapp
