DC Motor Control Using MATLAB and Arduino

In this tutorial, we will show you how to control DC motor using MATLB and Arduino. If you are new with MATLAB then it is recommend to get started with simple LED blink program with MATLAB. Creating MATLAB Graphical User Interface for controlling DC Motor After finishing setup with Arduino for MATLAB, we have to build GUI (Graphical User Interface) to control DC motor. To launch the GUI, type the below comm ...

What is Brushless DC Motor (BLDC) and How to Control it with Arduino

Building stuff and getting them work, the way we want, has always been sheer fun. While that being agreed, building stuff that could fly would defiantly pump a bit more anxiety among the hobbyists and hardware tinkerers. Yes! I am talking about Gliders, Helicopters, Planes and mainly multi-copters. Today it has become very easy to build one on your own due to the community support available online. One comm ...

Interfacing Stepper Motor to Arduino

In this article, we are publishing a project which explains different aspects of interfacing a Stepper Motor with Arduino. Stepper motor is a specially designed DC motor which comes with advantages of both a servo motor and a normal dc motor. Compared to a normal Dc motor, the maximum rpm a stepper motor can produce is very low. But they have the advantage that they can be positioned accurately. Unlike serv ...

DC Motor Speed Control Using Arduino & PWM

Speed control of DC motor with PC Interface is an easy DIY project. In this project DC motor’s speed is controlled by sending the command through PC. Arduino is directly connected to PC through the USB cable and command is given to Arduino on serial monitor of the Arduino IDE. Motor is connected to a transistor, and the base of transistor is connected to PWM pin of Arduino and motors speed is varied accordi ...

Arduino Nano Tutorial – Pinout & Schematics

Arduino Nano Pinout The Arduino Nano, as the name suggests is a compact, complete and bread-board friendly microcontroller board. The Nano board weighs around 7 grams with dimensions of 4.5 cms to 1.8 cms (L to B). This article discusses about the technical specs most importantly the pinout and functions of each and every pin in the Arduino Nano board. How different is Arduino Nano? Arduino Nano has similar ...

Controlling Multiple Servo Motors with Arduino

Using one or two Servo with Arduino is Easy but what if we want to use more than one Servo Motors? Here, we are going to show you that how to control Multiple Servo Motors with Arduino. Connecting multiple Servo Motors with Arduino seems to be easy and but if we connect all the Servos to Arduino supply pins then they won’t work correctly because of lack of enough current to drive all the motors. So you have ...

DC Motor Control using XBee & Arduino in Proteus

Hello friends, I hope you all are doing great. In today’s tutorial, we are gonna design a project named DC Motor Control using XBee & Arduino in Proteus ISIS. I have shared the complete code and have also explained it in detail. You can also download the complete working Proteus Simulation given at the end of this tutorial. In this project, I have designed two Proteus Simulations. The first Simulation i ...

DC Motor featuring 4Duino-24

In this project, we will learn how to control the speed and direction of a DC motor via I/O ports with PWM output capability, a L293D quad half-h drivers IC and 4D Workshop widgets. In its simplest form, a DC motor has two wires which is connected to a power supply. Depend on whichever way current flows in the DC motor, this will determine the direction in which the motor will spin. Motors are often used in ...

Headlight Modulator for Motorcycle

Unhappy with a headlight modulator I purchased, I decided to make my own. Even though it would be a trivial programming project to use an Arduino Teensy or similar to do this, I decided to do it the "old fashioned" way, using a 555 timer. The 555 is a clever chip; not only will it supply the oscillator for the flashing effect, it has a reset pin that can be used to force the output to a known state (low) wh ...

UT204 is able to measure DC current and also True RMS

company UNI-Trend is a near relative to the UT203. multimeter. Already UT203 provides a lot of user comfort and a very pleasant feature - measuring of a DC current without interrupting a measured circuit. However UT204 is different from its “weaker” brother in one essential thing - it enable measuring of a true RMS value of alternating signals (TRMS). As we know, usual multimeters usually deploy a simple re ...
