Wi-Fi RC Car controlled by Android Phone

at 8:51 pm. Filed under DIY Hacks, Electronic Hacks, Toy Hacks


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.”

    This is a pretty cool exercise of the “There is an app for that!” variety. But I don’t think it’ll have a large following. The smartphones are terrible in terms for ergonomics – nothing even close to a nice grip of an actual RC controller. My phone keeps slipping out of my hands for no reason at all, let alone if I’m busy controlling a fast moving toy with it. I’d say you need to make a harness for your phone if you attempt this else the screen is going to be broken through an unfortunate fall on hard surface. Not a question of if but when …

    Still, nothing is wrong with this project – it’s a problem with the the phones. Do they absolutely have to be shaped like a (flattened) brick and have smooth sides? (rhetorical question 🙂 )
