English
Use the RF24 type of transceiver modules to allow for communication between Arduinos
Use DC motors with L298N motor controllers
Use the HC-SR04 ultrasonic sensor to measure distance to an obstacle
Use a Wii Nunchuck with the Arduino
Create a communications protocol for transmitting instructions from a transmitter to a receiver
Select the appropriate type of battery for a mobile application
Select the appropriate microcontroller for a mobile application
Retrofit an existing toy to make it far more capable (and fun)
Become confident with the use of power tools, soldering irons

You made an LED to blink, played with sensors, got some motors to spin. You know your way around the Arduino IDE and have a good grasp of what the Arduino is all about

Now what?

How about you turbo-boost your Arduino skills by building your own remote controlled car?

This course will take you step-by-step and show you how you can take a typical off-the-shelf (boring) RC car and convert it into an Arduino-powered super-fun lab on wheels.

I call it Ardu-auto.

With Ardu-auto, learning electronics has never been more fun. Every step of the way, you will learn practical facts and skills that will help you elsewhere in your making career. Based on an of-the-shelf cheap RC car, you will use Arduinos, components, software and prototyping techniques to build your own custom creation.

Here’s what you will learn:

  • How to use proximity sensors to detect obstacles
  • How to allow for two Arduinos to communicate with each other using RF24 type modules
  • How to control DC motors
  • How to use a Wii Nunchuck
  • How to write a communications protocol
  • How to modify and adapt off-the-shelf raw materials for your project
  • How to integrate components into a complete system

This course is designed for people already familiar with the Arduino. If you are new to the Arduino, I strongly recommend that you first look at my other courses (Arduino Step by Step and Beginning Arduino) before attempting this project!

You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
