We wanted to map the air quality of the surroundings using an automatically controlled car that we can use over Wi-Fi and track its location.
What it does
A simple remote controller car that you can track with Google Maps
How we built it
We used a motor car kit and connected it to a raspberry pi, and hooked it up to a mokanix sim with a gsm dongle. Location data is collected via the mokanix API from an Angular webapp
Challenges we ran into
We don't have much hardware experience so building the car was quite challenging!!
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Being able to remote control the car
What we learned
Electronics basics, raspberry pi connectivity, mokanix API
What's next for Mokanix Tracked Car
Air quality sensors and mapping, data collection and storage, data analysis.
