Fairly new to this and need some guidance with Rover 5, Arduino Uno, Dagu 4 channel motor controller and SRF-05
December 6, 2011
fairly new to all this; have managed to build a basic obstacle avoidance robot with some guidance from luckylarry.co.uk. Now looking to use the Rover 5 platform and my arduino uno, however I don't know where to start with the control. In the past I have used SN754410 H-bridge chips but this time I've invested in the Dagu 4 channel controller.
From what I can find on this site the Uno has insufficient pins to control the motors and use the encoders. My question is, can I use the UNO to control the motor shield without the encoders? If so how would I set this up? And does anyone have a similar sketch I could upload to get to grips with?
Many thanks in advance
