In this tutorial we will go over how to convert an old RC car to work over WiFi or internet using Raspberry Pi 2. So you put geek hats on and lets get started. I have seen few RC Car projects on the web but they either were ESC (electronic speed controllers) based or 4 motor robotic type projects. This project uses 2 motors, one for throttle and the other for steer. You will be able to control this RC Car from any device (phone/tablet/laptop/desktop).
This is purely based on WebIOPi framework which provides easy HTML/JQuery based implementation to call Python scripts which contains the macros.
