The Arduino Software (IDE) can be extended through the use of Libraries, just like most programming platforms, to provide extra functionality to your sketches. These tutorials walk your through the Examples of a number of libraries that come installed with the IDE, to open them click on the toolbar menu: File > Examples.
To see the complete list of Libraries for Arduino boards (including Arduino Due, Arduino Zero and common contributed Libraries) visit the Library Reference page.
Allows Arduino boards to control a variety of servo motors, more informations at the Reference for the Servo Library page. For all Arduino boards.
- Knob: Control the position of a servo with a potentiometer.
- Sweep: Sweep the shaft of a servo motor back and forth.
Allows Arduino boards to control a variety of stepper motors, more informations at the Reference for the Stepper Library page. For all Arduino boards.
- Motor Knob: Control a highly accurate stepper motor using a potentiometer.
- Stepper One Revolution: Turn the shaft one revolution clockwise and one counterclockwise.
- Stepper One Step At A Time: Turn the shaft step by step to check the proper wiring of the motor.
