Lab 06

Description

I used Arduino with a DC motor. I followed the lab instruction and set up the Arduino with a DC motor. I used the sample code provided in the lab to make Arduino interact with the DC motor. I also made a paper wind mill and attached it to the DC motor. Lastly, I  uploaded the code and took pictures of the result.

Components

  • 1 Arduino
  • 1 DC Motor
  • 1 Breadboard
  • 1 batery case
  • 1 paper wind mill
  • 1 Transistor
  • 1Diode
  • 2 Batteries

Code:

/*
 * one pot fades one motor
 * modified version of AnalogInput

int potPin = 0;   // select the input pin for the potentiometer
int motorPin = 9; // select the pin for the Motor
int val = 0;      // variable to store the value coming from the sensor
void setup() {
  Serial.begin(9600);
}
void loop() {
  val = analogRead(potPin);    // read the value from the sensor, between 0 - 1024
  Serial.println(val);
  analogWrite(motorPin, val/4); // analogWrite can be between 0-255
}
