Shrey wanted to make a car that went fast. And we wanted a camera
What it does
Drives fast and takes video
How I built it
We began with the chassis, first connecting a Teensy microcontroller to the motor. Next, another Teensy was attached to a handheld controller by wiring two potentiometers, one for power and another for steering. An RF transceiver was added to each Teensy so they could communicate with each other. The Teensy in the car was also hooked up to a tachometer made with an IR sensor, which it used to measure the speed of the wheels.
Challenges I ran into
The radio interface was very spotty and it took a long time to get it to work.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Making it able to move, Using the camera.
What I learned
Radio interface, IntelliJ SSH
What's next for Red Rubber
We'll find out.
