I am planning to add switches to these boards later on however at the time
I didn't have any, therefore the only way to turn them on and off was
to connect/disconnect the battery. In the case of the TX it is
powered by plugging in the FTDI232 module.
For the TX board, I decided to use indicator leds for the states and the
commands for debugging purposes.

As seen in the pictures above, the solder RX boards attached to the chassis of
with electrical tape, the 2 9V batteries are taped to together and secured at
the front of the car.
The input pins of the L298N are seen attached to the female pins of the RX
board. The white wires are where the positive of the 9V supply are attached.
