/* 
 *  
 *  this project demonstrate controlling arduino 4 wheel robot using Dabble app
 *  we will be using gamepad module in digital mode 
 *  for more information about gamepad go to https://thestempedia.com/docs/dabble/game-pad-module/
 *  
 *  in this project we will be using HC-05 bluetooth module  
 *  for arduino "UNO" use bluetooth module buadrate below 38400
 *  
 *  connection of bluetooth module with arduino 
 *  
 *  HC-05 bluetooth module ----> arduino "UNO"
