Story

The story starts here, I designed my own breakout mini board for PSoC4. It came good and works fine with USB power supply. While testing the CapSense example project the idea flash in mind to control the RC car with CapSense effect. I have brought mini-cooper RC car from amazon (checkout the out-of box demo here) and removed the default RC circuits in the car. Added PSoC4 mini board and H-Bridge circuits to the rear DC motor. Power for the PSoC4 mini board & H-Bridge, I taken from the existing rechargeable battery (4.7v). To make it Cap-sense to work you need to create simple antenna using insulated wire (5cm Diameter). The rest of the things you need to take care in coding.
