In progress

Recently Greensboro North Carolina has gotten a Maker Space called the Forge.

I have contacted them and they are interested in myself teaching some clases on Robot Vision, Obsticle Avoidance and Distance Detection.

If you are in the area and are interested in visiting them here...

By default, most Arduino pwm outputs are set to about 490Hz or 980Hz. These frequencies work quite well with small dc brushed motors but can cause unwanted noise or reduce motor torque in some cases.

The frequencies are generated as a result of the clock frequency (this tutorial assumes...
