The need for graphical user interfaces in industrial and consumer applications is steadily increasing. To address this need, free scale is introducing a family of cost-effective and highly integrated Atmega microcontrollers that feature an integrated touch screen controller module. The idea behind the selection was channelization of human thoughts to automated realization. It is decided to implement the theme of automatic maneuvering of vehicles and the unanimous choice of sensor was touch screen. It was started with the thought of being able to replace the steering of a car completely by a touch screen. It is drawn on the experience of driving to reach at the choice of touch screen as a drive interface. Another innovation was the touch screen controller being wireless. The idea is application of the user input tracking capability of the touch screen to an RC car control scheme. The Radio controlled car should follow the path drawn by user on a touch screen in real time.
