Inspiration

AMAG challenge, James Bond motive, Volkswagen Golf, an opportunity to move a real car!

What it does

Allows you to completely control your car from your mobile phone. It uses the gyroscope to control steering, and touch input to drive, providing you a live full-screen view from the car.

How we built it

We took the barebone client provided by AMAG and built a Unity app around it.

Challenges we ran into

  • multiple difficulites with calibrating gyroscope
  • high network latency and connection issues
  • limited access to a real car for testing purposes (tested mostly on simulator)
  • limited familiarity with Unity
  • quaternions...

Accomplishments that we're proud of

  • smooth and comfortable gyroscope steering
  • Das Pilot One-Finger Drive Experience™

What we learned

  • handling Unity and C#
  • operating the gyroscope
  • lots of practical knowledge

What's next for Das Pilot

Being tested on a real Volkswagen!
