Robotic motor control tutorial

Posted on Saturday, May 12th, 2012 in code, firmware, robotics, tutorials by the machinegeek

Chris from PyroElectro has written a multi-part tutorial on building motor control firmware for a microcontroller, a PIC 18F252. This tutorial is based on his earlier robot chassis, but the principles relating to the use of a motor controller IC (SN754410) to move the motors at specific speeds and directions are of general application. If you’ve considered experimenting with robotics and are looking for a good basic explanation of this topic, this tutorial is a good place to start.
