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.

Sorry there is no kit for this particular experiment. The electronic parts were from JAMECO, as for the car I found this one at a local department store. I am sure that a kit could be found that does the same thing at any of the electronics supply website. I was not allowed to use a kit for this since it was a project for class.
is any site of online purchase this project plz tell me hurry... my mailing ID is shamsghnaghro@gmail.com plz contact with me.
that is a good project you have done there i have also done similar on please take a look

i have interfaced Arduino Mega with RC car receiver and have mounted three ultrasonic sensor for detection of obstetrical.
