There are many ways to use the DC-Car system:
Control without DCC addressing
If you want the cars to operate anonymously you can use the function module to operate the cars functions.
This works for all cars and does not use any way of addressing.
More information Function-modul.
Control with DCC addressing
With Progsets you can control the DC-Cars like a locomotive on your model railroad.
This is called "Short range IR control".
A better way to is to use the DC-Car Booster in conjunction with the optional LCIR in the car.
This is called "Long range IR control".
Important for controlling via a PC is the feedback:Request-Modul so the computer knows where which car is.
4. Turn Offs
To turn off of into a new direction, one needs a turn-off.
The simplest solution is with a servo driven turn-off. To control it one needs electronics to operate the servo. Additional elecctronics, the Category:Function-Modul, DC-Cars get the turn signal instructions as a result of the turn-off being set.
Automatic Turn-offs with TINY
Using feedback sensors on can operate turnoffs from the vehicles themselves.
This works with Servotiny´s in a few turn-offs.
Automatic turnouts with servos and servo decoder
The advantage: By combining a Servodecoder#S4DCC-Car with a function module you can have automatic turnout signals on your DC-Cars.
