Motor Carrier

Control motors connected to Motor Carrier

Control servo, DC motors M1 and M2 in closed loop control using two encoder inputs the on the MKR Motor Carrier or Nano Motor Carrier. Create arduino object before using the motor carrier functions. See Connect to Arduino Hardware for more information.
