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 ...

RC Car Anti-Crash System Using Arduino

Hi guys! So for my electronics class this year we were tasked with creating some kind of electronic gadget in order to demonstrate what we learned over the semester. Being a car-loving type of guy, I decided to get a cheap RC car and see in what ways I could hack it using an Arduino Leonardo I had leftover from lab. Having an infrared proximity sensor handy, I thought It would be nice to use the sensor to b ...

OpenSquare – Write big with a RC car

Hi there, You're going to transform any RC toy car into a big message writer that can be used to transform your city squares into witty messages, political statements or beautiful drawings, and for less than 20$. The idea is to drop a trail of powder or paint behind the car to write the message. Every RC car is different, and you'll be using your creativity and improvisation skills to create your machine. T ...

DIY GPS Tracked Bike Lock using Arduino

Having just purchased a half decent bicycle, and living in a city with a bike theft rate almost as high as New York, I wanted to have some peace of mind that if a thief with an angle grinder were to cut through my U-lock I could still catch them. My main design constraints were as follows: The device has to be Arduino based so that if I run into trouble I can easily search the forums for help Whatever I mak ...

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 ...
