Arduino based rc car I'm starting a new project this week and aim to build a fully functional arduino based rc car.
So far I've either bought or ordered
1) Arduino Uno 2) L298N Dual Motor controller shield 3) 6 channel RC transmitter and receiver.
Hopefully this should take care of the brains of the unit.
I'm having a bit of difficulty sourcing motors. In my mind this machine has to go as fast as possible and handle terrain, similar to this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3HyZ-raQseg
On the other hand I don't have much money so I'm reduced to scavenging most parts from a recycling centre.
I have a 30v drill motor and battery pack (no charger) so another one of those and I should be fine.
For tracks I'm thinking of something similar to this: http://www.instructables.com/id/How-...acks-for-very/
The body is going to be made from a mix of plywood and sheet steel, again, based on the quantities I can either find or buy cheap.
It won't be a pretty machine, but it will work probably
If anyone has any ideas or contributions please let me know.
My long term plan is to use this as a base for an array of sensors and develop a fully autonomous robot.
