Using MIT App Inventor 2, we developed an Android app
that is able to control many features of a RC car, using
a Bluetooth connection. Specifically, the angular velocity
of the back wheels, the rotation angle of a front servo, a
horn, music, light and GPS components.
All parts of the RC car were modelled
using the CAD software SolidWorks. The complete model
was divided in several components (which were meant to be 3D
printed separately): wheels, chassis, L-shape axles,
connecting bar and the body of the car.
A remote controlled car and the respective app were
developed under the supervision of Prof. Luís Sousa,
from Instituto Superior Técnico (University of Lisbon).
The following set of technologies made this project possible:
