This study presents some of the design and development stages of a radio control system for dense interference environments. All design and development stages were conducted by undergraduate students, with an undergraduate research project sponsored by a local company. The study starts with an overview of the system including choice of main components and modules. Then, it discusses the design stages of the system from analog to digital conversion to driving circuit of the targeted mechanical system (crane), and provides some preliminary results and conclusions. One of the design criteria in the project was minimization of the cost and size, and the preliminary results have shown that the prototype could compete with many commercial equivalents.
