WiFi RC Car with Camera and Force Feedback

Here’s some amazing work from maker Blair Kelly:

Arduino Wifly Mini is a remotely operated vehicle that communicates over a WiFi network, can be controlled with an XBOX 360 or PS3 controller, or G27 steering wheel, or any other controller that can be manipulated with Processing’s ProControll library, and features force-feedback and a first-person view. Presently only the G27 wheel and a Logitech F510 controller rumble properly with force-feedback.

To mention, the point-of-view camera inside the car can be set to pan in the direction that you’re steering so that you can see where you’re going. He also implemented force feedback to the controller triggered from sensors on the car. Blair documented this project in incredible detail.
