In this course, we will introduce you to the basics of motion control and robotics. We will show you how to build a few simple circuits to connect motors and add motion control to your next project. We will start by covering the basics behind servo motors, and make our way toward adding larger motors to your projects, and using switching transistor circuits to drive them. Learning to control motors is a basic step to home automation and robotics projects. Finally, this course will teach you about H-Bridge circuits and Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) Control Systems for extended control over speed, direction, and motion.
