I’ve been focusing on two major systems: the material and the behaviour. Materials. I’ve switched to the stepper motor, mounted underneath my objects to fan things open and closed using springs and rubber chords to retract them. I like the stepper motor much more than the servo motor because the torque and the strength is … Continue reading Progress

WK 9 – Motors

Lab: Using a Transistor to Control High Current Loads with an Arduino This lab helped us manage higher power supplies to control motors with a transistor. I’ve done something like this before but I’ve never seen code written straight to a transistor before. I really like this approach!   Lab: DC Motor Control Using an … Continue reading WK 9 – Motors
