I want to have a project as follows and need some advice as what components would suit. I am in the beginner category!
A basic project to control a motor speed by slide potentiometer, and directions by 2 buttons. Up to 12 volt dc variable, max 1 amp current.
Size is a requirement up to about 1 inch square, can use larger format for testing etc.
Motor to have own 12 volt battery source. Once tested etc. Micro etc to have own supply as well, once tested etc.
Once tested I will need a version that can be controlled wirelessly. That is using a phone (Roboremo App?) wif-fi or ble, or r/c. For a tracked model vehicle inside a room about 10-15 m range. For r/c would I need a transmitter ?
Currently I have a ESP01-F and a Pololu BD65496MUV Motor Driver, have not put together yet. But looking at Pololu site there seems to be a number of motor controller options that may suit. The simpler the better, control of 1 motor only required.
What Pololu micro recommendations do you have ? What ever you recommend, are there any similar codes and projects I can look at ?
I live in New Zealand, Palmerston North, if any Kiwis on this forum.
