Merging Hardware & VR To Create An Immersive Car Control Experience

This fun and innovative project employs a rotary encoder and Arduino to capture rotational data and translate it into car movements in VR.

Employing a rotary encoder to steer a car in a VR environment, Haja Mydeen successfully connected it to an Arduino to capture rotational data and translate it into car movements, providing precise and intuitive control.

For those unaware, Arduino is a very popular open-source platform able to read various inputs and turn them into outputs with its own programming language, used for a wide range of purposes, from everyday objects to scientific tools.

As Haja Mydeen explains, he developed a script to handle data from the rotary encoder, translating it into smooth and responsive car steering in VR with Unity and C#, and configured Arduino to read the rotary encoder data and send it to Unity, ensuring real-time feedback.
