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.

Bluetooth® Module

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:
