Entry in the toy car contest
Here is not only my first picaxe project that sorta worked but also my entry in the toy car contest. I have no idea what the car used to be but it is actually still remote controlled! I found it was easier to hack the remote rather than the car itself. I am using an 18x in an axe090 board and a darlington driver to talk to the old remote. The "drive tword the light" code could use a little work but the concept is sound. I think I have a side-job sold so a ping sensor and the IR remote should be in my future -maybe even a proper base and tracks, etc. I think this is a good first step, I am learning more each night and mad thanks to fritz for all the wonderful code. More to come soon!
