LEGO Technic Mini Tank with ESP32 & 2x NEMA 8 Stepper Motors | #LEGO #Technic #minifig #minitank

Fun little project using a Feather ESP32, “Joystick to Tank Drive” controller software, a custom Featherwing (!), a pair of Pololu DRV8835 motor drivers & NEMA 8 steppers, and even some custom 3D-printed parts. All the files are provided so you can easily order your own Featherwings for this or another project (the board design can actually accommodate up to 4 Pololu DRV8835s!). So cool!

For this project I used 2x NEMA 8 steppers motor to drive a tank built from LEGO Technic bricks. The microcontroller is an Adafruit Feather ESP32.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
