RC cars are fun but why let the fun end at driving it around with the supplied remote? Shazin Sadakath got a car and tore it apart to see what made it tick. He took an Arduino and was able to hack it into the car circuit to be able to control all of the car functions with the digital IO Arduino pins. After learning how to interface with the car the next step for him was to connect an ultrasonic sensor to the Arduino so it could see some of it’s surroundings. The end result will eventually include GPS, camera and an Android cell phone connection.  I am looking forward to seeing the end result.
