RC car testing

During another 5.5 miles, tried moving the camera farther back to get the front tires to wear less. It made steering unusable & didn't affect speed. Either have to recalibrate the steering or keep the weight centered. A wood piece as a landmark for the steering buttons was worthless. It was impossible to differentiate the wood from a button. That brought the car up to 66.5 miles.

An RC car exercise coach could probably make money. It would have to also collect location data, uploading it to a cloud service for sale to real estate developers. That's the big thing. Exercise tracking startups make a living by selling all the data.

Merely 20 years ago, junk mail factories spent a lot of money for databases of addresses. Once actually spent a lot of time trying to extract a database of addresses from a CD-R that was used for fixing & translating addresses to barcodes. It was a way to learn C, but it could also have made a lot of money, if it worked. Now, it's the same game, but with databases of absolute locations created by the population itself instead of a database of addresses created by the post office.

Have never put anything expensive on the car without a lot of shielding. It has to withstand a bike or car impact. A phone would be very expensive.
