Making keyboard controlled RF Car

  1. Jan 15, 2010 #1
    I have embarked on my first real project of making a wireless controlled car. But here the remote is going to be my keyboard. I am also thinking of mounting a camera on its top for live feed.

    Please suggest resources on everything, especially USB interfacing as I want it to be UPnP.

    Is no mentor here who could help me achieve my goal?

    Anyways, I have decided to break up this project into parts.

    The first objective is to make a long range receiver transmitter and receiver.
    I aim to get at least 500 meters of range. For this I would be needing FM range or other VHF/UHF band. I plan to use micro-controller on the car and computer on the transmitter side.

    So I think, I would need to employ a FSK circuit.

    But I am not getting a FSK circuit constuction.

    So can a simple FM modulator circuit be used as FSK, if its input is Digital?
