The above robot cars are controlled by Arduino. If you have Raspberry Pi board, actually the robot car can also be controlled by Raspberry Pi. You can visit the following link to learn basic movement with Raspberry Pi.

In this lesson, you must complete lesson 1 before you continue on with this lesson. We use the ultrasonic module to “see” the obstacle and measure the distance. If the distance is less than the predefined threshold value, the buzzer will beep and the car will turn around from the obstacle automatically.

You must complete lesson 1 (assembling the car) before you continue on with this lesson.In this lesson3, we will add a mg90 servo motor and to the robotic car built in Lesson 1.
When placing the ultrasonic underneath, as the self-tapping screws easily strip.
A.Support the motor from underneath, as the self-tapping screws easily strip.
B.Do not insert the screw until after the alignment process.
You must complete lesson 1 (assembling the car) circuit connection. No need to change anything, just keep the hardware wire connection as it is.
(Note: You need to split 1 pcs of male-to-female jumper wires from our 10-pc jumper wire bundle. Any color from the bundle will be ok. The rest wires are as spare parts for potential broken or damaged wires.)
(Note: You need to split 4 pcs of male-to-female jumper wires from our 10-pc jumper wire bundle. Any color from the bundle will be ok. The rest wires are as spare parts for potential broken or damaged wires.)

Step 1: Install latest Arduino IDE (If you have Arduino IDE version after 1.1.16, please skip this step). Download Arduino IDE from https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software?setlang=en, then install the software.
Step 2: Download https://osoyoo.com/driver/mecanum_metal_chassis_m2/m2-lesson2.zip, unzip the download zip file m2-lesson2.zip, you will see a folder called m2-lesson2.）
Step 3: Connect Mega2560 board to PC with USB cable, Open Arduino IDE → click file → click Open → choose code “m2-lesson2” in lesson folder, load the code into Arduino as following.
Step 4: Choose corresponding board/port for your project, upload the sketch to the board.
After turning on the battery, the servo will make some movement and finally stops at a direction for 5 seconds.
During this first 5 seconds, you must make sure the Ultrasonic sensor (two eyes) is facing straight forward.
If it is not straight forward, you should turn off battery immediately and remove the sensor from servo, reinstall it and make it facing straight forward direction as following picture. Otherwise, the obstacle avoidance program will not work properly.
After adjusting sensor direction, turn on battery again. If its direction is not straight forward, turn off battery and do direction alignment again.
If the ultrasonic module turn to front view position, that means you don’t need to adjust sensor position anymore. Just wait 5 seconds. If no obstacle is detected, the car will go forward. If any obstacles are detected, the car will stop, the ultrasonic module will turn from right to left to detect surrounding obstacle. The robot car will decide to make left turn, right turn or backward according to obstacle sensor data and our obstacle avoidance algorithm.
Sometimes your car might have collision and make your Ultrasonic sensor position change, you must remember to do sensor direction alignment again.

Following parameters in Line 35 to 39 of m2-lesson2.ino are very important to make performance tuning. See the comments in the #define statements:
#define FAST_SPEED 170 //both sides of the motor speed
#define SPEED 100 //both sides of the motor speed
#define TURN_SPEED 150 //both sides of the motor speed
#define BACK_SPEED1 150 //back speed
#define BACK_SPEED2 100 //back speed
