Grove Zero - DC Motor
• What is it？
The DC Motor is a rotary electrical machine powered from direct current. It rotates a shaft and anything attached on it, for example, a wheel.
• How it works？
The DC Motor converts electrical power into mechanical energy. By controlling the signals sent to the motors, we can control it’s rotate speed and rotate direction. The more signal it receives, the faster it spins. A negative signal gives a reversed rotation. For example, if sets 100% power will make the DC Motor rotate clockwise, then sets -100% power will make it rotate counterclockwise.
