Obstacles Avoiding Robot Using Arduino and Maker Drive

In this tutorial, I’ll share with you on how to build an Obstacles Avoiding 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.


This tutorial use :

  1. Maker UNO Bluetooth Robot Kit
  2. Maker Drive
  3. HC-SR04 Ultrasonic Sensor Module

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

Maker Drive : M1AMaker UNO: Pin 3
Maker Drive : M1BMaker UNO: Pin 9
Maker Drive : 5VMaker UNO: 5V
Maker Drive : GNDMaker UNO: GND
Maker Drive : M2AMaker UNO: 10
Maker Drive : M2BMaker UNO: 11
Ultrasonic : TRIGMaker UNO: Pin 5
Ultrasonic : ECHOMaker UNO: Pin 4
Ultrasonic : VCCMaker Drive: 5V
Ultrasonic : GNDMaker UNO: GND
