Tampa Bay Microcontrollers and Robotics Message Board › Microcontroller Motor Controller with programmable timing

Microcontroller Motor Controller with programmable timing

A former member
Post #: 8
I am interested in finding someone who could create an apparatus which would allow a motor to be turned on and off and have the speed varied via a program. Ultimately I would like for multiple motors to be controlled via the same interface. The entire project would need to work on a timer. I will explain.

Motor A, on forward at ? speed for ? time, off for ? time
Motor B, etc.

The electronics I expect are easier than the programming. I would also like for this to be timed down to, at least, 100ths of a second.

Run from a car battery or other 12v current.

These motors will be pulling a load but the gearing will be such that they don't need to be incredibly strong, just so they are repeatable.

There is also the desire to have a circuit closed occasionally, also on the timer.

If you are interested, and hopefully know how to do such a thing, please let me know.

Hi. I just discovered this board and joined the group. I don't know if this is allowed (moderator - feel free to delete this post if not) but I would like to put in a plug for our project that is building exactly what you mention - an intelligent microcontroller-based motor control system for robots. To read more visit http://transport-robo...­. Everyone is welcome to participate.
