CAROBOT Motor Shield V3 Guide

The CAROBOT Motor Shield allows you to easily control motor direction and speed using an Arduino. By allowing you to simply address Arduino pins, it makes it very simple to incorporate a motor into your project. It also allows you to be able to power a motor with a separate power supply of up to 12v. For all of these reasons, this motor shield is a popular device that is commonly used in projects, such as robot cars, and much more.    In this article, we will talk about the setup and operation of the CAROBOT Motor shield with Arduino. ...

Line Following Robot Car Using Arduino

In this article, we will guide you on making a robot car that can follow a line. We will be using the parts that we carry in our shop.  We will be using CAROBOT Motor Driver and Servo Shield to make connected Motors to Arduino UNO. The shield separate the Uno's PWM digital pins (3,5,6,9,10,11) and the non-PWM digital pins (2,4,7,8,12,13) for easy identification. Furthermore, it provides a 5V and GND rail for easy connections. The Motor and Shield shield is equipped with an L298N H-Bridge Motor Driver. This allows the shield to drive two DC motors.  We will also be using...
