BB-8 Arduino and Control

Banner copy


Here is the code I used for my BB-8. I will explain more in the near future, but I wanted to get up for everyone to check out. I have a total of 4 Arduinos running this system talking over XBEE. One in the controller, one in the Dome, one in Drive System and the last one running the sphere lighting. Tose last two have to be separate as one spins on the sphere and the other in stationary.
