In the first part we built the robot and loaded a sample sketch to make sure all our connections and motors are working. In this part we will add another module to connect via Bluetooth and build a Windows app to communicate to the robot. This is what we will accomplish as a bare bones communication app.

I am partnering with one of the universities near me to perform a few workshops to build a Windows Phone App to control an arduino robot via Bluetooth. I recently built an universal app that communicated to an arduino board to perform a little trivia game. It was fun and straightforward. I am bringing most of that underlying code over to controlling a robot. Here is what I got so far:
