Arduino RC Gamepad

I set out one day to figure out a way to utilize some relatively cheap electronics to make a homemade RC transmitter and Receiver using an arduino on both ends. The advantage of this setup vs a standard RC transmitter & receiver is that you can connect sensors to gain some level of semi-autonomous capabilities (for example a proximity sensor which takes over to stop the robot before it drives off the edge of a table or down stairs). You could also utilize more buttons on the gamepad to control other things besides the drive motors (like a gripper for example) without needing additional channels.

Check out this project on Instructables.com for the wiring diagrams, code used, and step by steb build instructions.
