Accessing the RC car remotely

You can now control your RC car, but you certainly want to do this without any connected cables. This section will show you how to add a wireless LAN device so that you can control your car remotely. In Chapter 1, Getting Started with Raspberry Pi Zero, you learned how to access Raspberry Pi Zero from a host computer. However, for this to work you need your Raspberry Pi Zero to be connected to a network, either with a LAN cable or a wireless network. What if you want to drive your car where there is no network, but still connect to it? You can do this by making your Raspberry Pi Zero a wireless access point.

Setting up Raspberry Pi Zero as a WLAN access point depends upon the USB WLAN adapter you choose; see http://elinux.org/RPI-Wireless-Hotspot ...
