In part 1 of this episode we give a overview of how we turned an Oldsmobile Delta ’88 into a remote control car in just 4 weeks. We built our control systems using a few motors, potentiometers, a Compact RIO embedded controller, and LabVIEW. We then set up wi-fi communication so we can drive the car from an iPhone as well as from a modified Power Wheels truck.
Android version coming soon?
