Bluetooth Mobile Robot wih Maker Drive

In this tutorial, I’ll share with you on how to build a mobile robot using a Maker Drive. Before this we’re using an L298N motor driver and now we’re going to change it to Maker Drive and here are the reasons why:

  1. Easy to troubleshoot with the push button and LED indicator.
  2. Support motor voltage from  2.5V to 9.5VDC
  3. Solid state components provide faster response time and eliminate the wear and tear of mechanical relay
  4. 5V Output (200mA) to power the controller with minimum input voltage of 2.5V.

HARDWARE PREPARATION

This tutorial use :

  1. Maker UNO Bluetooth Robot Kit
  2. Maker Drive

You can make the hardware connection based on the diagram and table below.
