control rc car via laptop or android device

Hi,

I am completely new to this and completely lost as well. I have a project as part of my college work and the project is to control a wired or wireless remote control car via laptop keyboard or a android phone. I dont know what and what I need to make this happen all I have is an old wired remote control car.

Help needed and ideas would be tremendously appreciated.

Best regards,

First thing you have to do is getting control over the car. How to control the motors that are in there. You could do that with an arduino. When you have this, you can use this:

Android app for bluetooth communication:

HC-06 bluetooth:

Then off course you need to do some programming.
