my first robot
what I am trying to do is make a mobile platform with a little breadboard on it so that I can try different projects. Underneath I have a l298 motor driver kit from solarbotics attached to the standard fa-130 motors that came with the tamiya gearbox. I had a hard time soldering the one lead of the caps onto the motor chassis, but the lead-to-lead caps are ok.
Im about to cut a hole in the front to mount the ping sensor and servo.
Everything works great when I have 2 seperate power sources, but ideally in the end I will have just one rechargable pack. Right now if I try to run both the Stamp project board and the motorcontroller from the same source, the stamp resets itself a couple of times a second. One person suggested a filtering capacitor for the motor controller, but I dont know anything about this.
My knowlege of electonics is really limited, but If you bear with me Ill be sure to keep you posted!
