Now available in the Elektor Store is Matthew Scarpino’s book Motors for Makers. Makers can do amazing things with motors. Yes, they're more complicated than some other circuit elements, but with this book, you can completely master them. Once you do, incredible new projects become possible.
First, the author explains how electric motors work and what you need to know about each major type: stepper, servo, induction, and linear motors. Next, he presents detailed instructions and working code for interfacing with and controlling servomotors with Arduino Mega, Raspberry Pi, and BeagleBone Black.
Motors for Makers is 100% focused on what you can do. From start to finish, you'll learn through practical examples, crystal-clear explanations, and photos. If you've ever salivated at what you could do with electric motors, stop salivating…and start making! All source code and design files are available for you to download from the Elektor website.
