Arduino Car Projects is ideal for new Arduino Makers and graduates of Arduino Step by Step Getting Started.

Use your Arduino Uno and programs to control a car with motors and sensors.

Use a joystick, an infrared controller, and a smartphone to drive your Arduino car.

This course is an opportunity to apply your new Arduino knowledge in a series of small projects with a common theme: the Arduino Car.

Learn how to combine various hardware components to create an Arduino car with many fun features. Control your car with a joystick or with your phone. Learn how to wire motors and decode signals from an infrared controller (and much more).

This course teaches essential Arduino and programming skills through a series of fun mini-projects of increasing complexity.

Each mini-project allows you to explore interesting hardware and programming topics.

For example, you will explore vehicle safety using an ultrasonic distance sensor in one project.

In another project, you will learn how to control the Arduino car with your smartphone.

You will learn how to program motors, take input from sensors to implement automation features, and explore various options to control your car.

In this course, you will learn software skills, such as:

  • How to program car functions with the infrared remote control.

  • How to use Bluetooth Low Energy, your smartphone, and the ArduinoBlue library to control the Arduino car.

  • How to use the ESP01S wifi module, the Blink cloud platform, and your smartphone to control the Arduino car and its peripherals.

  • How to compensate for tiny differences between the motors that affect the driving qualities of the car.

  • How to use the distance sensor to prevent a crash.

  • Two different ways to control the speed of the DC motors.

In this course, you will learn to use an Arduino Uno along with various peripherals, such as:

  • One or two DC motors with the help of a motor controller module.

  • An analog joystick.

  • An infrared sensor that can receive encoded commands from an infrared remote control.

  • An ultrasonic distance sensor.

  • A buzzer.

  • And two radio frequency communications modules:

  • A Bluetooth BLE module for near-field connectivity.

  • An ESP01S Wifi module for Internet connectivity.

You will also learn how to power your Arduino motor project with one or two batteries to separate the Arduino and motor sub-circuits.

What hardware will you need?

This course requires an Arduino Uno or compatible board, a car chassis, motors, sensors, wires and other components.

This hardware is not included in this course; you must source it separately.

You can purchase these items as part of a kit sold by Sunfounder or individually from your preferred retailer.

You can find a complete listing of the hardware you will need for this course in the course hardware lecture (free to watch before you purchase this course).
