Here is a first test run video of the RC car using Wii Remote.
- Wii Remote setups
I used wiiuse library to get the data from Wii Remote.http://sourceforge.net/projects/wiiuse/

I referred to the Sparkfun site for the documents, especially command sets.https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11162
- System configuration
- Start playing!
Launch the command prompt and run the command below.
[Path to nc.exe]\nc.exe -L -p 5001 | [Path to mplayer.exe]\mplayer.exe -fps 31 -cache 1024 -Log into the RPi and type the following command.
TX (RPi)raspivid -t 999999 -o - | nc [insert the IP address of the client] 5001
Connect the bluetooth devices, I-Racer and Wii Remote.[TBD]
Raspberry Pi Camera Board
EW-7781Uh WiFi dongle
PS Vita Portable Charger
Wii Remote Controller
This is the test run of our PC version RC car project using Wii Remote and Raspberry Pi camera board.
It still requires the improvement and there is a bit of controller lag, but it was still fun playing with it :)
Maybe it would be also nice to use Wii Wheel. I should try that when I have a chance.
