I´m using an Arduino Diecimila to control the steering servo and the traction motor.
The XBee module recieves data from another Arduino, this one has a wii nunchuck controller attached.
Next Step: make it autonomous
Update: 31 Jan 09
I´ve added two ultra sound sensors and now I´m trying to make this bot a wall racer. Due to its drifting capabilities its being very hard to code this, but I will find a way.
I´ve replaced the 4 AA batteries by a small 7.2V battery and now he has more power wich also means more nerves.. :D
…So, after a couple of hours of trying and trying, I quit, and decided to relax and enjoy some drifts.. :]
