IP Control Car was launched in 2001.
I make the similar function car utilizing commercialized products.

The concept of Car No.02 is to utilize commercialized products, and I am an amateur in electrical. So, do not blame me that the system is not sophisticated, i.e. servo & speed controller control system and webcam system are not integrated, or 4 different types of batteries are used for R/C Car(7.2V), Arduino(5V), USB Device Server(12V) and Wireless Broadband Router(5V).

Step 1: Procurement

hello If I am wrong for what I am about to say please tell me and I am sorry? You do not explain how everything is connected. Like for example I was wondering where the Bluetooth modem is connect to on the car.
Hi, thank you for your comment. <br>Just refer to my Car No.04 project. <br>The devices connections are shown in the first page. <br> <br>http://www.instructables.com/id/Car-No04-I-have-integrated-batteries-modularized/ <br>
Can you make your videos not private we can see your demonstration like you intended?
Thank you for pointing out. I have revised.
Thank you. Your project is pretty cool.
i have a tamiya wild one and am curantlly restoring it because it is 26 years old <br>tamiya is a realy good brand!
Love the project! I built a rolling platform for a laptop PC, to get the same drive-by-joystick experience, but it's all the same in the end :)
20 Kg of R/C car xD<br>Nice project :D<br>
