Small project to control an RC car via pc. I've placed a small RF pinhole camera in the car so I could be used for manual driving and for image processing.
Here are some pictures of the modified remote and the connections to the arduino:
The RC control can be manual via keyboard or semi autonomous by following faces (this is still in very early stage of development)

I've changed the control from keyboard to head direction detection. Still has plenty of bugs and there is some issues with the rc car base.

I've had some issues with low light conditions, so I've added an LDR, picaxe 8M and two powerfull leds. Now it can be driven under low light conditions. Also I added a bigger rechargable battery so it would increase the autonomy.
