RC car

Rc car with arduino

Hi guys, I'm planning to make an obstacle detection rc car where the rc car will have its power being cut-off/reverse when the sensor detects an obstacle.

If I were to use an Arduino to make this project happen, how should I link the Arduino with the rc car?

Can take simple Forward, backwards, stop commands.

Self-Driving RC Car

Hi there,

I'm planning a project - a self-driving RC car. The idea would be to use a 1:10 RC car chassis/motors for a racing robot.

In my mind this is fairly simple - I should be able to control the motors at the point where the Receiver sits?

 

However, I've noticed that the hacks I've seen - automated or otherwise work on the Transmitter instead. What's up with that? Is it simply to remove the arduino kit from the car? Because I'd rather have the car as entirely automated and not relying on other, wireless components.

how to make an RC car move forward using a microcntroller

I can control my rc car steering wheel left, center and right. But I can not make it move forward.

Im using the LPC2148 microcontroller.

Any help will be great!!!

where to find a specific DC motor

I just found this two rc cars, and I want to give them a new life. The small one seems to be working ok, but the motor of the biggest one doesn't want to work.

I removed the dc motor and noticed one thing I never saw, there are the two wires that connect to the motor pins, and there was a third wire but got loose. I think it was soldered to the motor body, and I wonder where must it be connected.. ground? I try to ground it but the motor still doens't work.

RC car controlled by PC or PDA using wireless communication

Hallo Everybody !

This is my very first post ! ))

I am doing the robo-project in the university. The main task is to build a robot using wireless technology that can be able to perform number of tasks that are sent from the PC.

My robot is based on (quite out-of-date) Tamyia RC car in 1:10 scale. All electronics is placed inside plastic box ont the top of the car. The brain is made of … Read more
