DIY Steering Wheel
October 08, 2022 by İlge İpek
Hello to everybody! In today's blog post, we'll build a DIY steering wheel, one of the most important components of a sim racing setup. The 900-degree-rotatable sim racing steering wheel we're intending to manufacture will work with lots of driving games, like iRacing, Dirt Rally, Asetto Corsa, Euro Truck Simulator 2, and more!
This project's software component is not particularly challenging because of a program called MMJoy. Software called MM Joy is intended for sim racing fans and amateurs. It allows our steering wheel to easily and quickly interact with driving simulations. So, building this project doesn't require much coding or software expertise.
This project's electronic circuit is relatively straightforward. In order to convert the turning angle into an electrical signal, we are utilizing a potentiometer. Our Arduino Leonardo board will read these signals and speak with our PC through USB in addition. While constructing it yourself, you can refer to the schematic below.
