IMU based remote control car

This project is a mechatronics project that I worked on back in university. The project was to create a car that is controlled by using the movement of your hand. If you tilt your hand forward, the car moves forward and so on. We were a team of five, my responsibilities was to create, weld the circuit for the glove(shown in the pictures below) and program the micro-controller to send signals to the car wirelessly.

We also added a couple of things to the car.

  1. If you move your hand quickly downward the car will beep.
  2. A turbo button attached to the glove to make the car go faster.
