Introduction: Arduino Controlled RC Car

http://youtu.be/TxttM20YwpA
This was my capstone project for the ITT Electronics program. it is an obstacle avoiding "bot" that was put together in one affternoon before class.

Step 1: Parts

The parts used for this  included the RC car , Arduino micro controller, diodes and a Ping ultrasonic sensor.

Step 2: Wiring in the Arduino

The car I chose was a very simple design. on the radio reciever I used a multimeter to find which lines when high at what times. this allowed me to interface the Arduino with the car with diodes in the path to to protect the Arduino when the car is used with the remote. When the remote is used I have an ON/Off switch mounted on top of the car.

Step 3: Final Testing

After all the componets I tested in both Automatic and manual modes to see the final testing please go to my youtube channel Thejosg77.  thanks for checking this out.

    This looks like a very nice project to do with my little cousin. I was wondering, would it be possible for me to get the schematic diagram and the codes that was used as well as the parts that i would need pls. This is my email address (superRichard240@gmail.com ) hope to hear from u soon.

    pls do you what was use for tilting the front tires.THANKS

    this is a nice car .Please what did u use for tilting your front tyres?

    Can you, pleas send me schematic diagrams and the codes that you used? dominiklasic98@gmail.com Thanks :)

    I was looking for something like this the other day! I am currently working on my own car using 3D printed parts, and your code will save me tons of time.

    how do you wire the ardino, why are you showing us when we still don't know how to make it

    Right now im making a car from scratch wish me luck

    Try searching Jameco or Digikey websites I am sure you will find one at either of these.Good luck and have fun with it.
