Today, our group did more coding experiments with the Arduino.
We used the Motor Shield Extenstion to power a DC motor, as shown here:
We found a lot of valuable information regarding this particular motor:
-It can spin in two directions, for a set amount of time, for a set speed.
-The direction is determined in the code by using the HIGH and LOW commands
-The operative threshold for this motor is ≥70 speed, anything lower than that will NOT move.
