News - Arduino: The Documentary

Theres just layers to everything. Not every driver of a car has to know how to build the engine under the hood. Why? Because maybe that particular driver is a Doctor? and he has a whole other skill set that he concentrates on thats important within his paradigm, a skill set thats not important to a Mechanic who practices repairing engines. So the Doctor uses the car to drive to his office. A means to an end. The same when the mechanic goes to his office when hes sick. A means to an end. Everybody has an end, and everybody uses a means to get there with.
Nah.. no change.. Doesn’t look like i have a split board because i set the 12v+ on one end of the power rail and then linked it to the ED (EvilDriver) on the opposite far end, and it still powered up
yeah, same exact code and wiring as Dan. I get the same clicking after commenting out MS and MS2. i’ve tried so many things that it just seems like something fundamental.. i have a short video clip of me soldering if by any chance it has something to do with that? it being my first time soldering and all
No luck.. i did start to get a Succesion of motor beeps though, three low in volume but high in pitch beeps. i get that when i disconnect the arduino ground
it was actually hard for me to get those readings. First i was doing it with the power on, which i found out i shouldn’t. but odd thing was when the power was on, i was taking the reading and the motor started to move. whats that mean? However, the subsequent readings i got before and after the power was off were between 30-40 ohms. Those Terminals im using are from radioshack http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2102861# The spacing is .19 so i just bent it .01. I did that to test to see if the problem was with the Spring Sparkfun terminals i bought.
oh thanks for helping, i posted some photos here http://www.flickr.com/photos/55011272@N02/
i tried so many things i was starting to think maybe its my solder points? It being the first thing i’ve soldered and all. they seem good though. yes i have Blue-Yellow left and Green-red on the right, and have tried everyother combination as well, in despiration of course. The motor does lock when the powers on… which i read is good? The motor also gets hot and i can feel it clicking in response to Dans Code when he turns Sleep from High- low -high.
cant get it too work for the life of me. i set it up like http://danthompsonsblog.blogspot.com/2010/05/easydriver-42-tutorial.html - The only thing the motor responds to is when SLEEP is changed from low to high, and thats a dull hum at best. sigh any ideas?
