Drive a Car with an iPhone Remote



The car can be remotely steered using a laptop with LabView software as the brains.  A custom app lets you control the pedal and gas with touch sliders on the phone. The steering is taken care of by the iPhone’s accelerometer.

Three instructional videos take us through the project. The first gives an overview, the second focuses on the components and the third is all about the code for the iPhone app. All three end with glimpses of car-surfing with a driverless car. You can also check out the text description onhow they did it.

Get yourself a salvaged car, some scavenged motor parts and the other hardware mentioned. Try this one out far away from the cops.
