Hello. I've taken the last 2 days to think about robotics and I think I take it as a serious hobby and also career. With that out of the way, I want to make some things clear before I order the parts and start building.
There are many things.
It's gonna be based on a modified RC car.
1) I want my robot to be fast, so I am gonna be using a brushed motor to power the back wheels and a cheaper motor to change the direction of the front wheels. There isn't gonna be any problem with the coding, as it is gonna be different than the differential drive. I am experienced enough with programming. I will be using a roboduino. WHAT MOTOR CONTROLLER OR MOTOR DRIVER DO I NEED TO ATTACH THE 2 MOTORS TO THE ROBODUINO?
2) The car has a really nice battery pack NiMH btw. But it has only 2 wires. Black and red(I believe positive and negative) and a weird connector. I will take out that big connector it already has and I will be left with those 2 wires. HOW DO I POWER THE ROBODUINO WITH THAT NICE BATTERY PACK? WHAT TYPE OF CONNECTOR DO I NEED FOR IT AND WHERE DO I BUY IT FROM?
3)The battery may be too powerful for the board, where from do I get some sort of adapter that I can use to not burn the roboduino and other components.
4) I hate soldering. Are there any microcontroller ready photoresistors. I know the tutorial, but I don't have a soldering iron and I dislike(hate, detest) soldering. So I need some photoresistors ready to be plugged into the roboduino.
I went ahead and removed the rc board from the car so all I have now are the wheels with motors in place on the chasis.
I LOVE YOU GUYS AND GALS. ALL OF YOU.
