Rc Car Crashes

Griffin isn't the first out the door with an RC toy that uses your iPhone as a remote control. But it is the first company to come up with some compelling ways to use the iPhone's touchscreen for more than just steering. Its new Moto TC Rally car is packed with sensors that detect crashes and impacts affecting how the vehicle drives, while on-screen weapons and power-ups let you mess with your opponents. In other words, it's as close to a real-life version of Mario Kart as you can get.Besides forcing you to be a much safer scale driver as crashes and accidents will affect your car's performance—a feature we're assuming can be disabled—the Moto TC Rally makes challenging a friend a lot more entertaining. You can still challenge each other's raw driving skills, but added to the mix are virtual weapons that can hinder or impair your competitor, as well as armor that serves to protect—but also slow—your own vehicle. And like the latest iterations of Mario Kart, you never have to deal with that annoying blue shell.Available now for $100, the Moto TC Rally's accompanying app is free and requires iOS 6 or higher, so unfortunately Android drivers will feel left out. And while a 'Race the Clock' mode lets you compete against yourself, this is definitely one of those toys where you need a friend to really have the most fun.

Show All Items Hi guys! So for my electronics class this year we were tasked with creating some kind of electronic gadget in order to demonstrate what we learned over the semester. Being a car-loving type of guy, I decided to get a cheap RC car and see in what ways I could hack it using an Arduino Leonardo I had leftover from lab. Having an infrared proximity sensor handy, I thought It would be nice to use the sensor to brake the car whenever It got too close to crashing into a wall. I’ll try to be as clear as possible in case you guys want to build something similar or in case it’ll help with one of your projects.

Turns out there’s an easy solution for this, too. If we’re in a crashed state (#3, below), just make the car back up a bit, at an angle. The key is to check for a collision again after the car reverses to see if we’re still in a crashed state. Guess that’s why they invented the while loop.

Reinforcement learning in Python to teach an RC car to drive itself — Part 3Simulating the real worldPart 3 in my reinforcement learning series is a bit of a setup post. In part 1, we discussed the fundamentals of reinforcement learning in Python. In part 2, we discussed how to measure the neural network’s performance, did some hyper parameter tuning, discussed patterns that emerged from the tuning, and outlined next steps.This post is the implementation of those next steps, which gets us very close to turning this into a real-world autonomous vehicle.Just want the code? It’s on GitHub here. Pull requests welcomed!My goal with this project is to create a self-learning, self-driving RC car that can navigate my apartment without bumping into things.

Okay,if we’re going to use the Arduino to drive the DC motors in the car we are going to need an H-Bridge in our circuit. I could have just used the H-Bridges which are already integrated into the car’s circuit, but I found it easier to just use my own chip instead of deciphering the manufacturers circuit. The H-Bridge I used was the SN754410 which is used to drive small DC motors.Some Background Info: Basically, an H-Bridge lets you switch the polarity on a DC motor so can run it both clockwise and counterclockwise. Its called an H-Bridge because of the shape of the circuit. The circuit itself has four switches and depending on how you close each switch, you can run current through the motor in different directions giving you the ability to run a motor in two directions.The Half-Bridges and Full-Bridges A half-bridge accepts one digital input and has a corresponding digital output. However, the output only works if the corresponding Enable pin on the chip is set HIGH, the chip is powered (VCC is set to 5 volts), and the Ground pins are actually grounded. The half-bridge lets you drive a DC motor in one direction. Two half-bridges create a full-bridge which lets you drive a DC motor in two directions. The SN754410 H-Bridge is a Quadruple Half-Bridge driver meaning that it has two full-bridges. Each side is a full-bridge and is capable of driving a DC motor in two directions.
