I designed an remote control John Deere riding mower using a Teensy 3.2 for the main processor. I'm using a Pololu Simple Motor Controller G2 18v15 to drive the steering motor and linear actuator for the brakes. If you look closely you can see the Teensy in the middle of this picture on the JRover board.


Here is the overall electronics.


Here is a wrap up video showing the mower running


This project is part of a bigger project to build an fully autonomous riding mower and push mower. For more details on this project and my future plans you can visit this blog post (https://www.sparkfun.com/news/3427) on Sparkfun.com.

Is there a master contactor or emergency stop switch?
