This is my first Arduino project and my first ever video.
Xbox360 Controller is used to control a RC Car.
A C++ program runs on a laptop. The program uses an input library called Object Oriented Input System found here, sourceforge.net/projects/wgois/.
The program reads the input from the Xbox360 controller and sends simple data serially through the USB port to the Arduino. The serial library was found here, codeguru.com/cpp/i-n/network/serialcommunications/article.php/c2503.
The car's original circuit board was ripped out and the Arduino was hooked up to the car's drive and steering motors. A dual H-bridge motor controller is used to control the motors.
- Supa Charge! Make this run off a RC Car battery rather than USB.
- Go wireless using bluetooth
- Add a wireless camera with pan and tilt functionality
- Add siren leds that toggle on/off when I push a button on the Xbox360 controller
