Using an Arduino as a garage car parking sensor

“M-my lord, it-it’s impossible to locate the ship. It’s out of our range.” – Nute Gunray We recently moved into a new house and as always the first problem to address was finding the optimal place to park cars in the garage. Ideally, we wanted to park the cars as close to the garage door as possible, leaving the maximum free space between the front of the car and the back wall of the garage. I was discussin ...

Gesture control car(robot) with Arduino and Android(bluetooth)

Hi folks, Here's an interesting project for all you creative minds out there. We are going to build an android phone controlled RC car. Nothing could be more fascinating than remote controlled cars. This one uses Bluetooth for communication and accelerometer of the mobile device for gesture control. The reason behind the use of a mobile is its versatility and the omnipresence. This mobile device has a great ...

Arduino car LCD display

Here is a project I made a couple of years ago for my father’s car. The original dashboard’s info-panel which displayed current time, date and temperature was working only partly – and that only after a good cleaning and connector fastening. In other words – it wasn’t really usable, so I made an Arduino replacement. The new panel features: Big 8-character LCD display with auto-on adjustable white backlight ...

Version 2.0 Arduino Controlled Car Tracking System based on SMS

This system is upgraded version of previous project... You will be able to track your car after you build this system, you will call the device then it will send you an sms which includes LAT, LON and Google Map link for just one touch to see where it is. Before you start to build them, you should connect the Wavecom to PC to adjust Serial Com. Baud Rate to 9600 then make it save this configuration via AT c ...

CAN-Bus Shield

CAN-Bus Shield description: This shield gives the Arduino CAN-Bus capability for communication with vehicle engine management systems. It uses the Microchip MCP2515 CAN controller with MCP2551 CAN transceiver. CAN connection is via a standard 9-way sub-D for use with OBDII cable. Ideal for automative CAN application. The shield also has a uSD card holder, serial LCD connector and connector for an EM406 GPS ...

Arduino controls cheap RC car transmitter

OBJECTIVE Cheap Chinese RC toy cars can be had for about 5 Euros in the local market. The wireless brains behind the majority of these cheap RC toys is a pair of very cheap ICs the TX2 and the RX2. Yup, that's what they are called. So this tutorial is focused on the TX2/RX2 based remote controlled toys. I bought one RC toy car a while ago and used the Arduino with an IR sensor to drive it. Then I figured wh ...

Autonomous Control of RC Car Using Arduino

This instructable shows how to modify an inexpensive RC car so it can be controlled by an on-board microcontroller.  You can program the controller to make the car do any number of driving patterns and stunts.  Once you have the car being controlled from the on-board controller, you can add sensors for light and sound and make the car do things like line following. Step 1: Gather Materials and Tools I used ...

Autonomous Arduino Car

My questions for the Make-to-Learn Youth Contest :) What did you make? This goal of this project was to take commonly available electronic equipment and create an inexpensive, self-controlled vehicle. In simpler terms, this is an attempt at basic autonomy. It uses an arduino logic board coupled with a cheap remote control car along with a 9 volt power supply to accomplish this. How did you make it? The idea ...
