There have been a few important things that could not be covered due to shortage
of time. They have been explained as follows.
Review of the circuit...
--As the receivers output are not powerful enough (only 6V) to drive DC motors of
12V directly we need some kind of drivers. A very easy and safe method is to use popular
--NOTE: We use 12V dc motors as they are available readily in the market with a gear box
of different rpm attached to it, thus providing robust drives.
This IC is known as a motor driver IC. Its working is like a relay module. As you
can see in the figure the voltage to drive the 12V motors is to be supplied at the pin no. 8
and hence the positive of the 12V battery is to be connected directly to the pin no. 8. The
enable 1 and 2 require 6 volts (in our case) to enable the drive of the LHS and RHS motor
respectively. Only after that, the motor can be driven with the help of the pulses that
would be given to the IC through the receiver module to the pins 2, 7, 10 and 15. For
example, if pulse (6V in our case) is given to pin no. 2, then 12V would be the output
from pin no. 3 and similarly if pulse is not given the pin no. 3 would act as a ground.
Thus, input pulse at pin 2 would rotate the motor in one direction while input
pulse at 7 would rotate the same motor in opposite direction when the other input is at
--The reason is that a potential difference of 12V is generated between 3 and 6 no.

--------see the connection and make sure that all the connection is true and perfect ?
best of luck for making wireless robot...
