Boat controlled by Wiichuck via Arduino

Hello Aruinoers, I set up a canoe this summer to run a pair of electric trolling motors with golf cart batteries. It has servo steering and battle bot motor drivers controlled by an arduino that takes commands from a wii nunchuck. Is this the first electric vehicle controlled by an arduino? If there are others, please post! I'd love to see them. I'm pretty sure it's the first boat.

I made a short movie about it posted here on my blog.

thanks for watching, Tim


I do wonder what happens if you drop the Nunchuck in the drink though... :)


LOL, yeah, If it gets dunked, the plan is to shut down and grab the spare nunchuck. And when that one goes, I grab the old school controllers, paddles!


thats awesome :)

Great Job, Tim! ;)

Congratulations excellent project and great video.

Very cool!


Creative project!
It’s great :slight_smile:
