FOUR ON THE FLOOR FOR YOUR VIRTUAL RACE CAR

There was a time when building realistic simulations of vehicles was the stuff of NASA and big corporations. Today, many people have sophisticated virtual cockpits or race cars that they use with high-resolution screens or even virtual reality gear. If you think about it, a virtual car isn’t that hard to pull off. All you really need is a steering wheel, a few pedals, and a gear shifter. Sure, you can build ...

THIS GUY BUILT A DIY CABLECAM USING A CHEAP RADIO CONTROLLED CAR

Cablecams are a lot of fun, but they’re not inexpensive, even if you need just something small for your action camera. There are commercial solutions out there, like the Wiral Lite, but they’re pretty expensive for what they are. Perhaps even more so than the camera you’re mounting to it. When Kasper at MAKESOME was asked by his friend Mick if he could help design and build one for his Insta360 ONE R, ...

Project Small Car

This car was made as a creative activity for students from Erazmus project. The Small Car celebrated big succes. So I've decided to share this small, unassuming and yet very educative project with community. It's ideal to entertain students, for instance during public open day at schools. This project will help students master their 3D printing skills, PCB making skills, constructing skills and programming ...

CONTROL ANYTHING WITH A CHAT BOT

In the world of Internet of Things, it’s easy enough to get something connected to the Internet. But what should you use to communicate with and control it? There are many standards and tools available, but the best choice is always to use the tools you have on hand. [Victor] found himself in this situation, and found that the best way to control an Internet-connected car was to use the Flask server he alre ...

Mobile Phone Controlled Robot Car using G-Sensor and Arduino

In this article, we are going to Control the Robot Car through the G sensor of our mobile phone and you will be able to move the Robot just by tilting the Phone. We will also use Arduino and RemoteXY app for this G-Sensor Controlled Robot. RemoteXY app is used to create the interface in the Smart Phone for controlling the Robot. We will add the joystick in the interface so that Robot can also be controlled ...

CarTracker

Have you come out of a store and said to yourself, where did I park my car? Well, I have. Now, there are a lot of smartphone applications that can help you locate your car but smartphones are expensive. So this Lazy Old Geek (L.O.G.) decided to make my own. HowItWorks: When you park your car, you press the button, car tracker calculates the car location GPS coordinates and stores them in EEPROM so the car t ...

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 ...
