DonkeyCar Nvidia Nano Parts List
We have looked at many variations of parts and decided to go with the Nvidia Nano, a TP-Link WiFi dongle and the Logitech F710 Joystick. Here are our recomended parts.
We are also looking into getting the wide-angle (160 degree) cameras but we have not tested these enough.
