Hello everyone! My name is Emily and I am a bioengineer. I am currently working on optimizing a device I build for a research project. A single motor rotates the device, and I have been using  Arduino to try to control the motor speed electronically. I followed the directions from this post on the DroneBot Workshop post from 2017, where an Arduino, L298N H-Bridge, and potentiometer are used to control a DC motor. I have gotten the setup and code working for my motor, but I am hoping to further the setup to have more electronic control. I do not have much experience with Arduino or electronics, so I am hoping I can get some ideas and advice from experts and aficionados who are a part of the DroneBot Workshop community. I will find an appropriate forum to post more details about my setup and the goals I am hoping to achieve. I look forward to chatting with you all!!

Hi Emily and welcome to the forum.

You've already experienced the excellent workshop's resources and, as you've probably seen, there's much more.

Whatever your project needs I'm sure you will find this forum a great place to seek answers and advice.

Looking forward to your posts to see how your motor control develops
