WiiChuck controlled RC car

So I built a line following robot last year and it was cool, but it really just did its own thing and wasn’t very interactive. Fast forward to now and I finally got the stuff together to build my own WiiChuck controlled RC car. It was a lot of fun to make and I hope others are interested in trying out projects like this as well.

What you will need:

  • Arduino
  • Wii Nunchuck
  • old soap dish
  • WiiChuck adapter ($4 at sparkfun)
  • Rutgers Motorshield or equivalent

The code I created for the project is open source and can be found here

You will also need to download the WiiChuck library.
