First off, I know JavaScript is a terrible language to write autonomous cars in - it's single threaded and has a terrible timer. Your accuracy is limited to ms and even then it's not precise because of the single threaded nature.

That said, I wrote a node.js raspberry pi gpio package (https://github.com/EnotionZ/GpiO) and wanted to use it. I was already planning to mod an RC car to use with my Arduino board and decided to throw a raspberry pi on it for kicks, and I wanted to prove that my node gpio package works.

The node-rc library I used in the video can be found here https://github.com/EnotionZ/node-rc
