4G controlled car

Written by Benny Jacobs

This town: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the plastic car. Its five-minute mission: to explore strange new streets, to seek out humans and intelligent life, to boldly go where no robot has gone before.


Existing electronics where extracted from the plastic car and replaced by my own. This includes a Sabertooth motor driver and a BeagleBone Black

Two different pieces of software are run on the BeagleBone. One to allow access to the d-bus from a sub-connected android device. The other piece of software sends signals to the motor driver.
