INFRARED REMOTE CONTROLLED CAR
« on: August 17, 2010, 06:22:37 AM »
I AM A 3rd YEAR ECE STUDENT.I HAVE DOUBTS ABOUT THE MOTOR CONNECTION.
1) HOW THE MOTOR CONNECTION IS DONE?
2 )    WHETHER I NEED FOUR  DC MOTORS TO CONTROL FOUR WHEELS OR ELSE I CAN USE A SINGLE MOTOR ITSELF TO CONTROL FOUR WHEELS MOVEMENT.?
PLZ HELP ME?

All caps is the same as yelling so don't do it!

Now first off your questions are not very clear.
A picture of your design will help.
Just attach the motor(s) where is shown on the schematic and so long as the transistor is powerful enough, it will work fine

With one motor it is likely you will need additional gearing to transfer power to all wheels.
With 4 motors you will need a larger transistor, and you need more powerful batterys.
Motors alone will not be able to move much so I suggest you get geared motors, perhaps some that come with there own wheels.

PS "PLZ" is not a word ;)
And Admin said "Let there be robots!"
And it was good.

How many motors you will need will depend on your motor specifications and the weight you are planning to pull.
