Project Kong: Using the RC Controller

This video has our first modification to the Donkey Car; we restore the use of the original remote control. To do so we use a RedBear Duo to read the PWM signals comming from the RC receiver, forwarding them on as control codes over a serial connection made to the Raspberry Pi.

The both the code for the new SerialController part and the firmware for the Duo can be found on the project's GitHub page.


The music in this video includes “Sunrise”, “Nameless Beat”, and “DeadBeats” by TazLazuli. Their SoundCloud can be found at, with Twitter at
