Dream Car (Remote Control)

I am trying to make a car, that can control by any phn, and we can control it by Internet and Wifi.

(PHN: Personal Home Network)

Purpose

To Learn with others

http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-build-an-Arduino-WiFi-4x4-with-Android-Cont/

I purchased a RC jeep, complete with 4 wheel drive, flexible suspension, and off-road tires for about 30 bucks. Not long after playing with the car I determined that I could improve it by using WiFi and Android. So I wasted little time, and completely remove the circuit board that make up the cars electronic system. Using the existing electronics I determined the voltages and devised a motor control system that could be operated by the Arduino using a custom shield that I developed. The motor control system does not implement any PWM to control the speed. The car is design to crawl over obstacles, with very low gearing as a result it is very slow. This meant that just having the motors turn on and off would work just fine. The circuit I designed will however support PWM by using the enable pins.
