This is a project for my MS in Mechanical Engineering at UC Irvine. The goal was to modify an existing remote controlled car so that it automatically balances and drives on two wheels. The attached AVR Butterfly microcontroller uses signals from a gyroscope and a potentiometer (the arm is connected to the potentiometer and doesn't support the car) to control the steering of the car. I removed the padding and tube from the other videos and put the truck body on. In the video I'm just controlling the throttle, not the steering.
