Our middle school project is underway. One question I have is about your wiring schematic. You do not have a wire coming from the S2 on the Sabertooth Driver. Should there not be a wire on S2 and S1?Thanks for sharing such a well done Instructable.
What is the Step Down LM2596 for? I am guessing that your two batteries are providing 7.4V. Won't the Arduino regulate the voltage down to 5V or 3.3V? What voltage are your motors?
I reached out within our community and a local hospital has donated 5 - Jazzy wheelchair/scooters with dead batteries. I am having trouble finding the specs on the motors so we are going to purchase the largest Sabertooth 2x60 motor drivers to use. One of my student's father is our high school metals teacher and a local machine shop has offered to help, so we are going to weld up a frame for this project. We also are going to modify ours to have another mpu6050 for steering rather than switches. Ordering parts today. I will keep you posted with our progress. Very excited to get started.
I am a middle school teacher and robotics team coach. We are excited to go beyond build our Lego kits in the robotics world and build a segway. I have been doing quite a bit of research and many of the other projects I have seen use PID control. I am a rookie with the arduino, MPU6050, and 24V motors. Your project seems quite a bit simpler than most. Can you enlighten me on the PID control or lack there of?

Still trying to understand the Cross Fading project code completely, hopefully future lessons will help me go back and understand it better.

I followed all the steps and projects above. I understood everything until the last Cross Fading Project. This is a bit above me right now, but I will continue to read through it and try and interpret best I can.
