RC cars are tons of fun but driving a RC car using your Android Phone would be even better! Antoine Monmarché used an OpenPicus module mounted in the car to get the job done. There is documentation and source code available here.

“The RC car (battery powered) is completely controlled by Flyport. The module manages Wi-Fi link to an Android Smartphone and it drives the servo motors (PWM signal). On the following video you see the Android phone¬†internal accelerometers drive directly the RC Car.”
