L293 Motor Driver and H-Bridges

The most common method to drive DC motors in two directions under control of a computer is with an H-bridge motor driver. H-bridges can be built from scratch with bi-polar junction transistors (BJT) or with field effect transistors (FET), or can be purchased as an integrated unit in a single integrated circuit package such as …

Pneumatic Inverted Pendulum

Construction Mechanical structure Compressed air comes from air compressor and goes in the proportional valve. Coming out from the proportional valve, there are two branches of air flow (one is compressor air, the other one is exhausted air) which connect to the air cylinder (pneumatic actuator). The pneumatic actuator connects to a cart (the aluminum …
