The Arduino L293D motor driver shield guide is a robobtics project that involves driving various types of motors. The most common types used for robotic applications include DC, servo, and stepper motors. However, these motors typically cannot be driven directly by Arduino or another microcontroller. This is because of their higher current and power ratings,…
Mobile Controlled Home Automation
This project uses DTMF technology to control home appliances. DTMF stands for Dual Tone Multi Frequency.This DTMF based system can control home appliances via mobile phone communication from anywhere around the world.This facilitates the user to operate anything on his fingertips.It requires two cell phones to operate properly; one of them will always remain in touch with the circuit and another to place a call on that phone.
Line Following Robot
This circuit describe a simple line following robot which a you can easily make in your homes because it does not contains any complex digital circuitry and this can be made without using any microcontroller. In this circuit the robot the will follow a white line on black surface. This simple circuit is made with the help of single IC that is L293D and few more commonly known components like LDR and LED. LDR which is working as a sensor here. LDR is basically made up of semiconductor material. Semiconductor material has energy band where electrons and holes exist.
Interfacing L293D with 8051 Microcontroller
L293D is a motor driver IC. As its name suggests it can drive a motor (normally DC motors up-to certain range). Since the output voltage of 8051 is limited to 5V only thus motors with higher required voltage need some drivers to provide them their desired input voltage.What L293D does is, it takes the TTL (0/5v) input from the output pins of 8051 microcontroller and forwards the output through itself of higher voltage(required by DC motors).Connecting a DC motor directly to the pins of 8051 would not work. It may even damage the microcontroller. L293D is a 16-pin IC which can control a set of two DC motors simultaneously in any direction. It means that you can control two DC motor with a single L293D IC.
