Step 2: Build the Robot

use l293d to control motor

connect : input 1 to arduino pin 2

input 2 to arduino pin 3

input 3 to arduino pin 4

input 4 to arduino pin 5

test your robot and verify the forward , trun left , trun right and stop

    Question 1 year ago

    I have a question, enable 1 and 2 of the L293D to which part of Arduino they are connected, and how I do the test to know if the connection is working, on the other hand I am using Pixy 2 and at the moment of compiling the program I get some errors Because the project is done with an earlier version, I appreciate the attention given.
