Simultaneously changing DC motor direction

by rahatmaini on Fri Mar 08, 2013 6:07 pm

I will be using the H Bridge, Arduino Uno, and two DC motors in a small robot. I need to know if I can have one motor go in one direction and the other go in a separate direction (for turning smoothly). For example, reversing one and not the other and vice versa through software.

Is it possible? I hope so. Thanks! :)

Yes this is possible. As long as each motor has its own H-bridge, you can control the directions independently.
