The inspiration for this project was just to create a fun project by myself so that after that I can also play with it, also the most enjoyable part was not to use much from outdoor stuff and try to using household things to create it.

What it does

Mimo is a simple car made from cardboard that is controlled by a cardboard remote using wires, buttons, motors, and batteries and using some mechanics concepts to give the car, flow of direction of motion.

How we built it

I Built is using mostly household materials that can be found easily or can be easily purchased, like pen body, cardboards, straw, rubber tubes, battery, dc motors, bottle caps, hot glue, soldering wires, dc motor, 9V battery, connectors, and copper multiwire.

Challenges we ran into

Connecting wires and making those thick wires into shapes so that car can change its direction, and sometimes soldering and using an electric gun too and also running out of materials needed.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

I was able to create my own wired remote control car, in spite of not using much of the outdoors stuffs.

What we learned

I learned a lot about how electric energy can be converted to kinetic energy and also to change the direction how different types of setups can change the direction of the motion.

What's next for Mimo

Making a self-controlled car that detects an obstacle, traffic lights, and road signs by using image processing and IoT.
