Community Question

Hi everyone. This may sound like a silly question but Is there a way to Bluetooth connect to ez-b v4? I am using Bluetooth for several of my items on my robot such as a Bluetooth speaker. The Bluetooth is connected to my computer now. This gives it a different range than my wireless local network. If it would Bluetooth I could also feed my iPhone through the robot. I also have a ez-b v3 that I could hook up for that function but i would prefer to trade that one in. Any ideas?

I am already useing the pc sound card and Bluetoothing it to my robot. My original post was to find a way to wifi this signal to the robot then Bluetooth the audio to the Bluetooth speaker. Since then I think I have found an answer with a wifi/Bluetooth device. I have been thinking about turning everything to text then have the pc speak the text. This would make the one single voice work.

Ya @Ellis, after re reading your first thread I see that I misunderstood your original question. Sorry for stating a different solution then you were looking for and confusing the thread. I'm looking forward to see how your text to speech test goes. Please keep us posted.

I'll back out now and do other more productive things. ;)

@Ellis.

It sounds like a possible way to go. What sort of WiFi/Bluetooth are you thinking of using?

EDIT:

Sorry. I pressed send before I finished writing. *eyeroll*

What I was going to say was you may run in to issues connecting the WiFi/Bluetooth device you mentioned and your iPhone to your B/T speaker at the same time like I mentioned in post#22, as you may need to keep swapping device connections. Check the specs on the WiFi/BT device to see if it can handle multiple devices connecting simultaneously. Otherwise this may not be the fix your looking for.

If you did decide to use the breakout mod, it does away with the need to use a third device, so less peace of hardware, and one less device to charge/charge batteries on. Something to think about. ;)
