KripKart – Hands free control of a competition racing go-kart

  • Hack Details: A two degree of freedom transducer system to facilitate hands free control of a racing go-kart capable of 0 to 60 in three seconds and a top speed of 120mph by a quadriplegic spinal cord injured individual. (See link below for images)
  • What you need to make it happen?: Transducers, pressure sensors, actuators to control braking and acceleration. Programmer/engineer to integrate it all. Co-pilots. Welders, tie-rods, t-slot aluminium. (I have a good bit of this). Lots of improvisers. (arduino, piezoelectric, force sensitive resistors)
