Building A Self Driving Car : Jeremy Fielding #098
Excellent video from Jeremy Fielding posted back in November. It’s an ambitious project, which is why he decided to turn it into a series of videos to be able to cover the process more in depth.
The article walks you through the details of the electrical design and describes options other than a potentiometer which we plan to use. Please check it out!
I plan to talk more about the topic of motor selection in a future video in this series as well regarding steppers and other options that would all work with their pros and cons. This design is definitely subject to change as the series continues!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
