Program description

  • Control pin definitions explained.
#define motor_pinB 6  //Motor 1
#define motor_pinA 8  //Motor 1

//#define servo_pinB 5   //Motor 2
//#define servo_pinA 7   //Motor 2

const int vibrationPin = 10;  // Shack sensor
  • Locate the following code, where 255 is the maximum value of the motor speed, you can

adjust to any value from 0 to 255 (recommended value not less than 60, or may be

triggering Movies sensor stability).

  • Delay can be controlled motor running time, preset to 1000 ms, that one second, you can

modify it as needed.

void fullForward() {
  //digitalWrite(motor_pinB, HIGH);
  digitalWrite(motor_pinA, LOW);

Hardware Buildup
