CMPE 450 Capstone Design Project
iOS Remote Control Car
iOS User Interface
To interface an RC car to an Apple iOS handheld device, providing the user with a more interactive experience, controlling the car through both the iOS devices’ touch screen and built in accelerometer.
Altera DE0 Nano FPGA
Ideal for our project, it provides all the programmable functionality to complete our design, while being extremely portable and lightweight.

Roving Networks RN-174 Wi-Fi Module
Provides the project with a wireless connection between the iOS device and the FPGA, allowing the user to control the car from up to 25m away.
With their built in accelerometer and touch screen capabilities, iOS devices were the perfect choice for our remote control app. The app works on any iOS device running up-to-date iOS software.
Traxxis ESC and Waterproof Servo
These allow us to control the speed and direction of the vehicle through simple PWM signals.
