So I thought I would take a break with the overview/intro stuff and get back to the problem at hand, which is that I want to get the motors turning again.
One of the big milestones that I had reached prior to boxing-up ROVer was to have the wheels turning and ROVer rolling, which is to where I’d like to get back. So… I’ve been tracking down how I had done all that and found that the relay/switch that I had incorporated into the design (for future capabilities) is complicating this, otherwise somehow simple, task…
I wanted to give everyone a lay of the land, so to speak. It’s also been a refresher for me, as well, given that I’m quite rusty getting back into this project.
I’ll get into the problem-at-hand in the next video, but it’s also tied to understanding how I planned and wired everything. It’s sort of a process of deconstructing what I had done a couple of years ago to understand how to best go forward from here.
ROVer has been a project that I started about 3 years ago (back in 2014, I guess) and sat untouched for about 2 years of that …life got in the way it seems.
I finally got the nerve to crack open the storage boxes and resume the project and my recent enjoyment of YouTube videos inspired me to share my adventure with all of you.
I’m no expert …probably the very polar opposite… so I welcome all questions, comments, suggestions, ridicule, etc… I’ve only got ROVer this far with the help of many, many people on the WWW who are much smarter than I am, so one hope in doing these videos is to attract more of you smarties to help me figure some of this stuff out!
