Arduino RC Car Hack


In this project we hacked an RC Car (Maisto Rock Crawler) and replaced it’s stock circuit board with an Arduino Uno R3, Motor Shield, and XBee module. We used another Arduino to collect and interpret data from an Xbox 360 controller; this Arduino had its own XBee module, which sent instructions to its XBee pair located on the Car.
