Twin Cars

Building Instructions

The Twin Cars model uses one 5-Minute Bot to make the real car and then a "Fake Hub" and the rest of the 5-Minute Bot directions to make the fake car.

Programming Instructions

This remote control program uses two sliders (one for speed and one for steering) to control the twin cars together as a pair. It controls all four motors individually and does the calculations to apply the appropriate motor speeds given the geometry of the model.

This alternate remote control program uses a D-pad for the basic movement directions and also adds two additional buttons to execute "gate" turns. One advantage of this type of control vs. a pair of sliders is that you can use it with one hand or just a mouse from a computer without multi-touch.
