Frankencar - Features

In the Cub Scout outlaw pinewood derby, anything goes as long as the car fits on the track.

Frankencar is an Arduino-controlled, 400-Watt torque monster that smokes the competition. It was pieced together using VEX Robotics hardware, an outrunner brushless motor, an Arduino Nano, and various other components. A key feature is that Frankencar knows when it’s close to the finish line so it can slam on the brakes.
