RC lego and Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi hooked up to lego motors and controlled by an Xbox controller.

This RC Car is built from Lego Technic, controlled by an Xbox 360 controller. The circuitry and a small computer (a Raspberry Pi) are mounted on the chassis, with a wireless receiver at the back. It runs Ubuntu Linux and contains a custom Python control program.
