iPad plus Arduino plus Android plus RC Car
One of our readers (Landin the Macnx, thanks for the tip) sent us a link to the above video. It’s sort of a round about way of doing it, but some interesting ideas using Arduino, an iPad, a Android phone, and some Legos to control a RC car.
Here’s part of the video description:
I used two servo motors attached to the original remote control of the car to adjust speed and steering. These are controlled by an Arduino Uno, which gets the accelerometer data from the iPad through a socket server on my laptop. I also fitted my old Android smartphone to the car, which uses an IPCam app to stream the video to the iPad. The “camera”, the iPad and the laptop are connected to the same Wi-Fi network to share their data.
