Come join us at The Forge Makerspace (located in the North Branch Library, Denton, TX) to learn about the Arduino. In this class we will be covering the following:
Direct Current Motors Part 1 (http://bit.ly/2gaoliN) (17:30) In this presentation you will learn how to use a DC motor through a series of demos. All involve two geared DC motors (why use just one when we can use two?) and a motor break-out circuit. I'll explain what these are in a minute. Here's what we are going to build in this presentation: Direct current motors, Part 2 (http://bit.ly/2h612bY) (7:50) In this part, you will learn about how to control the speed and direction of rotation of a motor using a potentiometer. Direct current motors, Part 3 (http://bit.ly/2gasHqa) (11:55) In this part, you will learn about how to control the speed and direction of rotation of a motor using an ultrasonic distance sensor. After that, you could go ahead and design your fist autonomous driving vehicle. Parts Needed
