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.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
