Using L298N To control DC Motors with 2 Push buttons

This this video shows how to use L298N Module to control 2 DC Motor fully with Robojax Library. We are using 2 push buttons to STOP/START rotate motor in Clockwise CW, or Counter Clockwise CCW.Please watch video for instruction. Download library.

In this page you will codes to control 1 motor and 2 motors using L298N Motor Controller module
