Hello...I'm looking for help with a project. My goal is to find a way to have an arduino with an RC transmitter on my hat that would read my movement and connect to a receiver that powers a small electric RC car.
If I lean my head forward slight the RC car would go forward and backward then backward. The further I leaned my head toward, the faster the RC car would go.If I leaned to the left, it would start turning left and the same for going right.
I want to test this out because if successful, I would then connect the arduino to a motorized wheelchair for my friend who is paralyzed. He can move his head fairly well and already has one with a joystick but I'd like to make a better solution for him.
I'm in the US and would like help figuring out which arduinoi to purchase and get it going. Not to great at coding but can definitely follow directions.
His birthday is coming up in August so I'm trying to surprise him if I can with at least a hack showing how we might be able to either rewire his chair or add two brushless motors to his old manual wheelchair.
