Controlling RC cars with HackRF

Overview

Build Status

Small programs for controlling RC cars with HackRF.

ook_car

ook-car

This car works on 40.684 MHz and moves in 8 directions (forward, backward, left, right, forward-right, forward-left, backward-right, backward-left). You can see it in action here:

demo-ook

The remote control is using OOK modulation with long and short pulses. One long pulse is equal to three short pulses. For example, to move the car forward, we need to send 4 long pulses followed by 10 short pulses. We can easily find the control sequence for each direction by recording the signal from the RC and then analyse it with inspectrum:

ook-signal

To synthesize the signal with the HackRF, we need to transmit SAMPLE_RATE/SYMBOL_RATE samples ('1' or '0') for each bit of the control sequence. We can find the SYMBOL_RATE with inspectrum, it is about 2018. We choose the SAMPLE_RATE to be 2M.

dickie

dickie-car

This is the Dickie Toys Flippy RC Car, it works on 2.4 GHz and moves in 6 directions. You can see it in action here:

demo-dickie

First you need to turn on the car and then start dickie. This is because dickie sends a synchronization pattern upon start and the car needs to receive it. You can find more details about the remote protocol in this blog post.

concept

dickie-car

This car is very similar to the one from Dickie Toys. The support was added by @alexbilevskiy, you can find more details in this PR.

rover

rover-car

This is Range Rover donated by thegiftscholars.com especially for this project! It works on 2.4 GHz and moves in 8 directions. You can see it in action here:

demo-rover

Build & run

The programs depend only on SDL2, SDL2_image and libhackrf. To build on Linux:

$ sudo apt-get install libsdl2-dev libsdl2-image-dev libhackrf-dev
$ make
$ ./ook_car
$ ./dickie
$ ./rover

To build on OSX:

$ brew install sdl2 sdl2_image hackrf
$ make
$ ./ook_car
$ ./dickie
$ ./rover

Support

If you want to support the project you can send me an RC toy and I will try to reverse engineer its protocol and add it here. Send me an email for more details.
