The project ‘Vintage Cars in Cardboard FPV’ consists of the creation of vintage-style cars made of cardboard, remotely controlled with first-person vision (FPV) via radio control. The cars are equipped with wireless steering wheels, providing a realistic and fun driving experience.

Problem to be solved: The project addresses the problem of passive learning and the lack of practical applications in technological education. Through the construction and control of these cars, students acquire skills in design, engineering, electronics and remote control, while enjoying a playful and educational experience.

Project Components:

- Cardboard Cars:

The cars are designed and built using cardboard, recreating the style of vintage vehicles.

The use of cardboard as the main material encourages sustainability and the reuse of recyclable materials.

- Radio Remote Control:

The cars are equipped with radio remote control systems, allowing users to operate them remotely.

The integration of FPV cameras provides a first-person view, offering an immersive driving experience.

- Wireless Steering Wheel:

The cars are controlled by a wireless steering wheel, which simulates the experience of driving a real car.

This advanced control system enhances the interactivity and fun of the project.



Educational Value and Skills Development:

- Engineering and Design Skills:

Students develop skills in design and construction as they create the cardboard cars, from designing the parts to final assembly.

They learn about the aerodynamics and structure of vintage vehicles, applying these concepts to their designs.

- Electronics and Remote Control:

The project provides a practical understanding of remote control systems and the electronics required to operate them.

Students learn how to integrate FPV cameras and configure radio control systems.

- Creativity and Innovation:

Recreating vintage cars in cardboard encourages creativity, allowing pupils to explore artistic and technical design.

Combining modern technology with traditional materials promotes innovation.

- Teamwork and Collaboration:

Building and programming the cars requires close collaboration between students, encouraging teamwork.

Students must coordinate in the planning, design and execution of the project.


Technologies and Tools Used:

Cardboard and Recyclable Materials: Used for the construction of the cars, promoting sustainability.

FPV Cameras: Integrated into the cars to provide first-person vision.

Radio Control Systems: Used to control the cars remotely.

Wireless Steering Wheels: For a more realistic driving experience.

Prototyping Tools: Including cutters, glue and other materials needed to assemble the cars.
