Lessons 12, 13, 15, 16, 17, and 18 all make use of the detection and transmission of infrared light. Lessons 16 through 18 introduce the detection and decoding of infrared-encoded messages. This kit provides all the infrared detectors and transmitters needed for these lessons. Included are:

  • Two infrared sensors
  • Two infrared-emitting diodes
  • Heat shrink tubing for making infrared headlights
  • A general-purpose, multi-device, infrared remote control
  • Current-limiting resistors

Lesson 15 pulls together most of the content of the first fourteen lessons in the form of a rolling robot. This kit includes the following items:

  • Two brushed DC motors with attached gearing.
  • Two rubber-tired wheels.
  • #2-56 screws and hex nuts for mounting the motors on the robot body.
  • Two 0.1 microfarad capacitors for reducing the electrical noise generated by the motors.
  • Solid copper wire for connecting the motors.
  • Battery holder for six size AA akaline cells.
  • A 2.1 mm power plug for connecting the battery holder to the Arduino.
  • Velcro tape for attaching the battery holder to the robot body.

This same robot is used in Lesson 18 where it is modified to be remotely controlled.

LEARN: Learn about the wiring of DC motors, minimization of electrical interference, and control of direction and speed in Lesson 14 DC Motors.Learn about the H-bridge

ASSEMBLE: How to assemble the H-bridge circuit board is in How-To #7 Make an H-Bridge.

APPLY: Use the H-bridge to drive the motors for the rolling robot in Lesson 15: IR Navigation and Lesson 18: IR Remote Control.

CIRCUIT BOARD ONLY: This is the raw circuit board for the H-bridge we use when teaching about DC motors, their control, and minimizing electrical noise. It does not come with the other components needed for assembly. If you prefer the complete kit click HERE.

The circuit board uses the same through-hole components found in Lesson 14, DC motors and the completed circuit board is an essential part of Lessons 15 and 18, where it operates a pair of DC motors.

The board layout is generous, making it friendly for those just learning to solder. And the kit includes a single-row male header for plugging into the Motor Control Shield or a solderless breadboard.

Students in our classes have lately been using these boards to control stepper motors.

SKU PCB505

This is the circuit board used in the Motor Controller Shield kit but without the parts to be inserted and soldered. All other parts are listed in the How-to Make and Assemble Motor Controller Shield. Circuit board features wide traces for easy assembly.

The completed board can be used to control up to four servo motors or three servo motors and up to two DC motors, or three servo motors and one stepper motor.

Included is a solderless breadboard for support of robot-related experiments such as infrared navigation and control as found in Lesson 14 and Lesson 18.

DESCRIPTION: This is a shield for plugging into the Arduino UNO that provides for control of up to four servos. The servos may be standard or continuous rotation. A shorting block for each servo can be used to set the supply voltage to whatever is connected to the Arduino or to regulated six volts.

This shield can also be used to control DC motors that have controllers that make them look like servos. Examples are brushless motors for airplanes and helicopters, and brushed motors for heavier robots such as the Vex.

ASSEMBLY: Insructions for assembly are in How-To #6 Make A Motor Controller Shield.
