Arduino PID Motor Controller

INTRODUCTION : The development of high performance motor drives is very important in industrial as well as other purpose applications.  Generally all high performance motor drives use quadrature encoders and PID control because of its simplicity and precise control.  The quadrature encoder acts as a feedback from the motor, it is connected to the microcontroller for furthur processing. With the use of Ardui ...

Servo Motor Simulation via Arduino UNO

Hey everyone. I hope you will be fine. As you know that last time, we had started Arduino UNO course and given you a brief introduction how to simulate the LED blinking via Arduino UNO and its implementation in proteus ISIS. Now, today we are going to implement Servo Motor Simulation via Arduino UNO in proteus ISIS. What is Servo Motor? With the help of servo motors you can position the motor shaft at a spe ...

Knob

Control the position of a RC (hobby) servo motor with your Arduino and a potentiometer. This example makes use of the Arduino servo library. Hardware Required Arduino Board (1) Servo Motor (1) Potentiometer hook-up wire Circuit Servo motors have three wires: power, ground, and signal. The power wire is typically red, and should be connected to the 5V pin on the Arduino board. The ground wire is typically bl ...

Autonomous Robot Part 3: Ghosty

Introduction Ghosty is an autonomous little robot who is adventurous and loves to explore his surroundings. However, unlike a normal ghost, he doesn’t like to scare people. Instead they actually scare him! In our most current version of Ghosty, his vision line is based on the data of two proximity sensor data reads. The difference between the data of the two proximity sensors determine whether the motors th ...

Servo powered peristaltic pump controlled by Arduino

This instructable shows you how to make a pump using a servo motor and an Arduino Uno to transfer small amounts of liquids. The pump is a peristaltic pump which consists mainly of a motor, flexible tubing and a circular pump casing. Two rollers attached to a turning rotor press the flexible tube to the circular pump casing wall. As the rotor turns, the part of the tube under compression is pinched closed th ...

Brushless DC (BLDC) motor with Arduino – Part 2. Circuit and Software

In this post I will describe the hardware and the software part of a project involving the use of BLDC (Brushless DC) motor salvaged from a broken XBox 360. This is a second installment in the series of posts related to Arduino and brushless DC motors. Please see the first part for a bit of info on the theory behind the commutation sequence. Once you understand the commutation sequence for the particular de ...

Arduino Motor Shield

We are not the first to make an Motor Shield for Arduino.  But could be that we are the first that make a Motor Shield with a minimum of flexibility. We are studing a WiFi robot with camera controlled by Arduino. The robot will be controlled by browser. But we find a problem with an existing shield: the pin SPI to controll Ethernet shield (that become WiFi shield) are the same of motor shield. So we reengin ...

Tutorial: Arduino Motor/Stepper/Servo Shield – Part 1: Servos

This post starts a small (or larger?) series of tutorials using the Arduino Motor/Stepper/Servo Shield with the FRDM-KL25Z board. That motor shield is probably one of the most versatile on the market, and features 2 servo and 4 motor connectors for DC or stepper motors. That makes it a great shield for any robotic project The series starts with a tutorial how to drive two servo motors. And if this is not wh ...

Arduino Bipolar Stepper Motor

It is a well known fact that Stepper motors are awesome! The only downside is that they can be a bit trickier to get going than servos and plain old DC motors. If you are interested in the inner mechanics and theory of stepper motors, check this excellent post on PCB heaven. If you happen to have one of the cheap little 28BYJ-48 steppers with 5 wires  and a little driver board with them, check this tutorial ...

Pololu Dual VNH5019 Motor Driver Shield for Arduino (ash02a)

Get your Arduino moving! This shield makes it easy to control two high-power DC motors with your Arduino or Arduino-compatible board. Its dual robust VNH5019 motor drivers operate from 5.5 to 24 V and can deliver a continuous 12 A (30 A peak) per motor, or a continuous 24 A (60 A peak) to a single motor connected to both channels. These great drivers also offer current-sense feedback and accept ultrasonic P ...
