Just found this site from one of my many searches. Will get straight to it, though first of all.. I barely know anything about the subject.
I want to have an RC Car (petrol or battery operated - whichever is possible) to be able to go round a track on its own. Basically what I'm thinking is, i have the distance of the track, the curves degress angles and such.. basiclly.. i give the program a sequence of events in code but in plain english...
Forward for 5 metres
Turn front wheels 20 degrees for 5 seconds
Turn wheels to normal position
