Carrera Unifin

One of the projects I was assigned while working in Intus was this one for Unifin. The client wanted to make a race with electric cars that showed the winner based on retweets gained by each contestant. There were many challenges to achieve this but my main task was to use the Twitter API to connect it with the cars in the track.

We first worked with using the cars without the human controllers. We used a voltage converter for Arduino that allowed us to change the value with code. Then, I connected that value to a computer via Touch Designer. Once I could change the cars speed from the computer I made the connection to the Twitter API in Python.
