Building A Robot: Motor Control

Data & Observations
           So, compile the firmware/software program and download it to your PIC with a programmer like the PICKit and you'll be ready to see how your robot can control its motors. The video below demonstrates what to expect when using timed delays with robotic movements.

           The robot does seem to have good control over its movements, although it looks like moving forward in a straight line proves to be a little tough. Overall, the PIC did its job and the motor controller did its job and so we're happy with the results of this vital second step.
