I am a (somewhat) newbie in electronics. Well, I do know how to connect an Arduino UNO to a breadboard and make a few projects.
But what I am looking to do is connect a motor to a breadboard, and control in with an Ardunio UNO, preferably (since that’s what I have).
The motors have 3 lead wires which terminate with no pins (which I can see):
My 1st question is what type of connector(s) do I need to get the wires from the motor to be able to plug into the breadboard? Not sure what they are called, or what to use.
My 2nd question is that it looks like the motors come with an encoder. Is this just a data line? Not sure how to program for that.
My 3rd question is this robotic platform says that it is compatible with the “DFRobot Arduino Romeo microcontroller”:
But, I have the Arduino UNO. Can I still use the UNO for this project, or do I HAVE to use the Romeo?
Alternatively, I was also looking 2WD bots, if this makes any difference in terms of complexity
Any advice would be awesome and thank you!
