Project 16 – Driving two DC geared motors with MD10C by using SKPS

In this project, we will learn about how to drive two DC geared motor with MD10C by using SKPS. Thus, we will treat these two motors as the left wheel motor and right wheel motor. Therefore, we will use PS2 controller to control two DC motors in various type of movements such as move forward, move backward, rotate to left, rotate to right. In addition, we will use joystick to control these two motors in different movement with constant speed and variable speed. Meanwhile, we will use PIC16F887 in this tutorial for SK40C with LCD 2×16 to display some important messages when certain button of PS2 controller was pressed.

Arduino – Controlling MDS40A

The Arduino main boards such as Arduino-Deumilanove (Arduino-Due) which embedded with Atmel microcontrollers are quite popular due to its easy-to-use programming environment. Therefore, by interface Arduino main board with MDS40A, we easier to control the DC motors if compare to PIC microcontroller. In addition, further adding an Arduino-LCD Keypad Shield can help us to control the DC motor that connected to MDS40A with the 6 momentary push buttons (built-in push buttons on LCD keypad shield including 1 Reset button) and also display some useful message by programming.
