This is the second of two chapters that will show you how to complete the RasPi-controlled robotic car, a project that was started in Chap. 12. This chapter deals with the electrical wiring and most of the programming required to control the car.
Figure 13–1 is a block diagram showing all of the robotic car electrical components.
