New IR RC Kart Sample Model

Friday, April 22nd, 2011

Introducing the latest HiTechnic Sample Model, the HiTechnic IR RC Kart. This is an all new remote controlled car model and should be considered an alternative to the IR RC Car. This model is buildable with either LEGO Mindstorms 1.0 or 2.0 set as it only uses a subset of the parts available in these two sets. The IR RC Kart uses an IR Receiver sensor to make it controllable with a LEGO Power Functions remote. The model also introduces the new HiTechnic Motor PID Block; a general purpose motor control block that makes it easy to drive an NXT motor to an absolute position regardless of the current motor position.
