Infra/radio remote control transmitter/receiver with PIC

This is a general purpose remote control project with using programmable PIC microcontrollers. This project can be used with infrared (RF) or radio (RF) media. If you are not familiar with microcontroller programming, you can use fixed encoder and decoder integrated circuits instead. Well-known such IC-s are Holtek HT-12D, HT-12E and Motorola MC145026, MC145027, MC145028.[more]

Computer-Controlled R/C Car with Camera

Control a remote controlled car with your computer using Microsoft Robotics Studio. Then, add a wireless IP camera for stealthy remote operation.You Will Need a remote-controlled vehicle with a digital controller. That is, a controller that uses switches for orward/backward/left/right, not potentiometers. The car used in this article is a vehicle from the โ€œDub Cityโ€ collection by Jada Toys.[more]
