Steering wheel for race games


I want to make my own steering wheel with old steering wheel and some buttons and potmeters for Need For Speed: World. There aren't really much controllers supported and I don't want to spent so much money on them.

Supported controllers:

Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller for Windows Logitech Logitech ChillStream Logitech Rumble Gamepad F510 Logitech RumblePad Logitech RumblePad 2 Logitech Cordless Rumblepad 2 Logitech Dual Action Gamepad Logitech G25 Racing Wheel Logitech G27 Racing Wheel Thrustmaster Thrustmaster Universal Challenge Racing Wheel

I have experience with an arduino so, shouldn't be a problem. For a basic gas pedal. What will I need (from electronics)? I'll use an arduino UNO! and if I made a gas pedal, how can I program that if I push the gas pedal a little it would drive like 25mph constantly.. with stupid arrow keys you can't keep your speed.. If you get what I mean..


The Arudino is a Serial device not a Human Input Device... so to start with... you need some sort of Arduino-HID interface added.

Thanks for the word "HID". Never heard of before (Since I'm not a native English speaker) I found some very intresting things with HID and arduino. Going to a car graveyard tomorrow to get a steering wheel and some pedals.

The word really helped me :)
