Beta prototype ready

A project log for Smart Motor Driver for Robotics

This motor driver is able to control a motor using PID by I2C. Taking precise control of a motor have never been so easy.

Last weekend I have been testing what it's seems to be the first fully working prototype and fixing some bugs. Now SAMI is alive and fully capable of what I promise. In the next weeks I am going to do more test and after I have confirmed everything is as it should be I will sell some units on Tindie for beta testers. I would like to hear your thoughts and how we can make it better.

In the video I show SAMI - Smart Motor Driver moving 1 exact meter in a practically perfect straight line at exactly 80 RPM with just 10 lines of code(thanks to the Arduino library). You can connect everything in a couple of minutes and you can have up to 128 motors in the same I2C bus:
