Motor Drive and $50 robot
« on: January 29, 2008, 09:24:26 AM »
Hi

I am building the $50 robot this isn't my first robot so i got some of these chips
http://www.solarbotics.com/assets/documentation/kit10.pdf
and i was wondering if i could us these plus a normal geared motor instead of the modified servos.
and how would i need to modify them to be able to be mated with the 3 pins on the $50 robots cercit bored.

hmmm you might be able to. but the question is, is it worth all the hard work when you could just get a servo?
Robots are awesome!

umm if i understand yourplan correctly then you wont need to do that(modify them to be able to be mated with the 3 pins on the $50 robots cercit bored)
you will need an h-brigdge. i cant tell you anything about the circuit board wiring cuz i dont know much of it but yea read this: http://www.societyofrobots.com/schematics_h-bridgedes.shtml
it may be difficult to understand at the beginning(at least it was for me) but i understand it completely, just look for some robots that use the h-bridge and you will too :)

you would need to change the code of the software for the $50 robot , so I would suggest getting servos

Change the code, and change the headers since it would be just output onto the H bridge

Check out the Roboduino, Arduino-compatible board!

very easy. get an ESC. you wont even need to modify the code. but make sure to get the right one. cause brushless and brushed ESC are diferent
