Real car remote controlled
« on: February 16, 2009, 11:41:36 AM »
Hi

I am wondering if it would be difficult to make a car drive with a remote control.

I would use an automatic gearbox.
A servo to control the carburetor.
A 100 Newton motor to turn the steer left and right.
And a piston to control the brake.


Would it be possible and how much would It cost me?
This is for a project for my school.
Its for my last year. But I am now in my 5the year.

Its easy

Wheelchair motor with position feedback mounted to to steering wheel
Two Linear Actuators to both Gas and Brake.
Check out the Roboduino, Arduino-compatible board!

maybe a windsheild wiper motor would be enough


And where can I find Wheelchair motors

wheel chair motors can be found on e-bay, there are lots of posts on how to control them also airman00 has a website that has a artical on whell chair motors (link in his signature)

where Linear actuator?

you can make your own for cheap

Does anybody now a good way to brake quickly with a linear actuator?
I don't want to use hydraulics or pneumatics.
It's to messy to install.

Place a solenoid near the spokes of the wheel, and when you apply voltage, the solenoid stops the wheel. Or you can grab one from an old bike (safer)

i remember that from a while back! for the braking you could use the existing brakes and hack them somehow. im sure theres something down there, but as i know little about the anatomy of a car im sorry i can help you :( another option thats probibly easier but less reliable would be a solenoid that pushes down on the brake pedal?

The servos that Mythbusters use are available at Robot Marketplace, but they cost $500.

It's definately a nice place to stock up on some odd drive components and other random goodness. ;D  Lots of their random motors and suplus motors can yeild some rather pricey stuff if they were sold via the original retailer.
