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:
- 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.
