Need help choosing a microcontroller and motor driver for a certain robot!
July 5, 2011
I am thinking of building a robot and I need help choosing a microcontroller and motor driver(s). I was thinking of something like the Arduino, Axon II, Motoruino, or Orangutan SVP-328. Something with a USB programming interface would be nice. The robot I intend on making should have about drive 3+ servos, 2 motors/motor driver (maybe with encoders), two ultrasonic rangefinders, LCD, and maybe some other sensors (buttons, gyros, etc). Any other microcontrollers you could suggest would be helpful.
The motor driver should be able to drive two motors at around 1.5-2.5 A continuous.
Price is also a very big factor for me. :)
Hope all of you could help me!
