Pi remote Lawn Mower

Sat Jul 12, 2014 2:27 pm

I am working on a project to build a Pi lawn mower. I cannot figure out how to start the mower engine with the Pi remotely does anyone have any suggestions as it is driving me mad.:x :x or do you think it would be better to get a 450w motor and use that instead of the gas engine as I could just use a relay

or you could use the relay to turn the electric motor that turns the gas motor. If your lawnmower doesnt have electric start then the pi will have a hard time with this. if I was you id be more concerned about how to kill the engine before you kill your neighbours dog.
