Want to learn how to make things spin and move? Come learn how to add motors to your next project and control them with an Arduino! We are going to cover the basics of motors, drivers, and control code to make things move. This is an intermediate workshop and will cover controlling brushed DC motors and hobby servos.
We will cover motor fundamentals, motor characteristics, brushed DC motor basics, electronic control, and hobby servo control. The workshop will focus on open loop control methods with application to speed and position control. Closed loop control, Brushless DC, and stepper motors will not be covered during this session. If you are interested in those topics, check back for the Advanced Motor Control Workshop!
