Under the Hood

  • AppCar uses a NodeMCU micro-controller, based on the ESP8266 chip.
  • The MCU is pre-programmed with an Arduino sketch so that it works out-the-box.
  • Advanced users can control every input and output, modifying the robot to carry out a great variety of tasks.
  • NodeMCU is a true IoT device, and AppCar can be controlled over WiFi from any location in the world.
  • AppCar makes use of aREST.io, a cross-platform API for Arduino, ESP8266, RaspberryPi and many other devices.
