I modified my old Stampede truck with my Arduino! I added Anti Locking Brakes (Reversed motor)
I am working now on the same project, but not ABS. I will make ESP - electronic stability program. We have here snow and a lot of ice.. so it is very hard to drive without ESP, with Rear-wheel-drive and nitro engine:)
That was my original plan, but im not sure how to calculate wheel slippage...
I decided to use compass for sense and steering for feedback. So I will not brake with one or two wheels, only steering. Only one speed encoder on drive shaft for aproximaly speed. With this data I will try to keep the car on the straight line.
of a car that uses a tail like a lizard , as it jumps it lifts it's tail keeping the car horizontal in the air , im looking for it now
Thanks Crunch, thats really interesting!
Thats a great idea! landing on all four wheels is very beneficial to the car. I started this project only a few days ago, but I might actually try that, thanks! Although, landing with wheels spinning can strip gears :( I only use the brakes to tilt forward.
stop the forward momentum of the tires and therefore cause the vehicle to tilt backwards?
Dude, how can you show me this picture:
- and not tell me that you have added gyro/accelerometer to make sure the car has a nice flow in the air, by using the motors spin/stop/reverse to keep it at a nice smooth angle while flying?
.. Ok, fair enough, you have made sure it does not spin when stopping. And it's up to you what you do.. but.. ... !!!
