What is it?
This project NodeJs wrapper for a ESP32 to send signals to the blutetooth car. This allows anyone to control the car by hitting a http endpoint. Also built a hand gesture controller using Leap Motion as a proof of concept of the types of controllers that could be used. Finally built a Web client that allows of a user to control the car using a web app and display car statistics back to the user.
- Rescue Missions
Why We Hacked This
Extend the range of remote control from a couple meters to around the world
Provide an interface where others can create their own controllers
Provide car owners with real-time car statistics
If There Was More Time
- Added more functionality to the REST API, adding more different kinds/series of signals to be sent to the bluetooth car
- Added Sensors to the car and send that data back to a web client
- Added an Authentication process to use each vehicle so only registered owners/users may send signals
