SN754410 Dual Motor Control

An Overview Of The SN754410 Dual Motor Control
           Motor control is the heart of robotics and this tutorial meant to show you how to build your own simple motor control system using the SN754410 motor control IC and a PIC 18F452 microcontroller. The system was able to control two motors independently and accurately while keeping the overall system design simple.

What To Do Now
           As with any beginner project related to motor control, the hardest part is getting the accurate motor control, after that the sky is the limit. Once you've understood how to duplicate the motor control of this tutorial you can then build up your own project and stick some motors into it to make it mobile. Another fun area to move into is being able to control the location of the motor with PID to make a servo system. Use your imagination and see what project you can come up with that needs some quick, easy and fun motor control.

           The goal of this tutorial was to show you how to use the SN754410 motor control IC to control two motors and I feel this tutorial was very successful in reaching that goal. A practical system was designed and implemented in a way that other people can easily and cheaply reproduce for their own projects. While this motor control tutorial is meant for smaller motors, it opens doors to people who understand the basic topics presented in this tutorial to go bigger and better.
