Basics of Turning your Remote Controll Vehicle into an Autonomous System (Drone) Using an Arduino

I began this project with the objective of cheaply turning my RC helicopter into something of a UAV or at least to fit some sensors to reduce collisions and other "mis-haps." Now unfortunately at the beginning of the project i miscalculated my little helicopter's lift capabilities and so with the equipment fitted it has insufficient power to get more than a couple of inches of the ground, but all of the sys ...

GPS and GSM based Vehicle Tracking System Using Arduino

This circuit is designed for tracking the location of vehicles. Most oftracking systems are made by using GPS. This is very simple and cheap. Tracking systems are mostly used by fleet operators for tracking a vehicle location, routing and others. This is a very good method for preventing our vehicles from stolen. This tracking system sends us the geographical coordinates and by using these coordinates we ca ...

CARduino – Arduino-Powered, LabVIEW-Controlled Vehicle

The CARduino is a remote-operated vehicle which is controlled by a controller attached to a computer running LabVIEW. The vehicle is powered by the Arduino, and can be expanded upon through the addition of sensors or other devices. Using LabVIEW, one can easily modify the controller program and expand the features of the CARduino with very little or no programming experience. Two different versions of the v ...

Vehicle Telemetry Platform using Arduino

Ever wondered what goes on under the hood of your car? Wish you could peek inside the engine management system and read values from it? Annoyed that your dashboard displays a cryptic "Check Engine" light (yep, the engine is still there) but gives absolutely no explanation what the problem might be? You don't need a US$10,000 diagnostic console or even a laptop computer to get access to useful data from your ...

Arduino Fixed-point Vehicle Proximity Detector

This is the high-tech version of hanging a tennis ball from the ceiling from a piece of string.  Of course, if you have two different types of vehicles, that tennis ball isn't going to land in the same place on both of them.  This project can prevent hundreds of dollars in dry-wall repair and bicycle crank replacements, not to mention the shame of poor parking skills. In this instructable, we'll be making e ...
