Now that we've got the main systems of Affordabot in place, it's time to wire the components up so they can work together.
The video goes into good detail, but a good source of info is an earlier post I made about the TB6612FNG motor driver - http://www.meanpc.com/2012/01/how-to-use-tb6612fng-motor-driver-with.html.
Between the Meduino Nano and the TB6612FNG motor driver, these are the connections I made:
PWMA - Digital Pin 10
PWMB - Digital Pin 11
AIN1 - Digital Pin 6
AIN2 - Digital Pin 7
BIN1 - Digital Pin 8
BIN2 - Digital Pin 9
It is starting to look like this robot is going to take a lot of pins! I'm using 6 pins just for motor control. I'm planning on using 3 ultrasonic sensors, each of which will use 2 i/o. A speaker will use one more. There will be enough IO pins, but I am starting to think I will use a serial LCD instead of a standard parallel one.
Don't sweat these messy jumper wires - I'll clean them up soon. Going to custom cut short jumpers that fit flush on the breadboard.
