Control DC motor using L293D motor driver with Aarduino PWM

This video shows you how to control DC motor speed with L293D motor driver and PWM using Arduino.

Arduin oSource for L293D motor driver (loop)

This code will run loop to speed up the motor from value of 0 to 255 which is from 0% to 100% PWM.

Source for simple L293D motor controller using Arduino (RIGHT, LEFT and STOP)

This code will control the motor using L293D with different value to rotate right, left of stop it.
