Hacking my RC Car using Arduino and Android Smart Phone

Have an old toy car? I hacked mine using Arduino and an H bridge circuit to control the motors, used my Sony Z1 Android phone to control it with the recent 1Sheeld I got from Kickstarter. I thought to use the Gyroscope sensor in to drive it but after experimenting, I used the gravity sensor instead, will explain in details why later in step 5. Step 1: Required stuff Required components: 1- Android smartphon ...
