Step #1: Next
- Take a Phillips screwdriver and remove the back purple frame. Take one screw out of the back of the seat to reach the motors.
- After unhinging the seat, two motors connected to a switch can be found underneath. The switch controls the speed of the toy car.
- Take apart the back axle and wheels to remove the motors from the car.
Step #2: Next
- Open up the floor of the jeep to reveal the wire connecting the battery and pedal to the motors.
- Unscrew the hood of the car and slip the battery wire through to the backside, where the motors are.
- The final disassembly should include the two motors, speed control, battery connector, and the go switch all connected to each other.
- Using a jigsaw, remove the front half of the vehicle as shown in the third picture for this step.
Step #3: Next
- Soder All Necessary Parts
- Use the diagrams provided by the sensor manufacturer to properly place the electrical components on the sensor board.
- Use the medium heat setting on the soldering gun to melt down the solder to secure the components.
Step #4: Next
- Obtain Arduino Code and Program Arduino
- After purchasing the arduino, download the free arduino software to your computer from http://www.arduino.cc/
- Attach the arduino to your computer using the usb connector included in the starter kit. Program the arduino using the arduino code found on the following website. http://www.robotishappy.com/2009/12/beac...
- Build Remaining Carrier Structure
- Use the back half of the kid's car and some scrap material (such as lumber or plastic if it's available) to create a support frame for the front end of the carrier.
- Secure the material to the kid's car (via bolts and screws) and build outward to produce a frame (bringing the front end to a point is suggested because it will allow for a single pivot wheel and it will provide a strong structure).
- Add a Wheel/Wheels
- Attach a pivot wheel at the front end of your newly created structure.
