Another rc car revived by Arduino

For Christmas I recieved my first Arduino. I don't have an electronics background at all, but I always though they looked fun. I never picked one up cause I had no idea what to do with it. Well after getting one and making a light blink I still had no idea. Then one day my son's rc car broke and I thought it would be cool to drive it with the arduino. This is what I came up with.



You record button presses for fwd, left, right. .25 seconds per press. flip the switch and it drives. I'm hooked, so now I'm trying to learn as much as I can to get ready for a local autonomous vehichle comp in June.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
