On 10 October 1941 Hitler introduced his purpose to 'convert them into an impregnable fortress', and the islands shaped the main seriously fortified and defended part of the full Atlantic Wall. This publication describes the layout, building and manning of those shielding positions, in addition to contemplating extra greatly the career of the Channel Islands through the Germans.

48 CHAPTER 3  ROBOT ENGINEERING REQUIREMENTS: CONTROLLING MOTION ■ Note When using the serial monitor, make sure that newline is selected in the Line Ending parameter. Now that you have notes for Project 3-5, we can configure them into a requirements document. Gathering the Hardware Figure 3-20 shows the following hardware, which you’ll need for this project: • Arduino Duemilanove (or UNO) • Motor shield • Two 6V motors • Solderless breadboard • Robot chassis (for use only after the hardware and software has been tested) • USB cable • 9V battery Figure 3-20.

We will be controlling multiple motors with buttons. Project 3-3: Controlling Multiple Motors with the Arduino In this section, we will discuss the application of controlling two motors with the Arduino and the motor shield. This will help us understand how the Arduino communicates with multiple motors using switches (or buttons). We will be using multiple motors in the final project of this chapter; the only difference is that we will use buttons to control the motors in this project. Gathering the Hardware Figure 3-11 shows the hardware being used for this project, minus the 9V battery, 9V connector, and solderless breadboard: • 38 Arduino Duemilanove (or UNO) CHAPTER 3  ROBOT ENGINEERING REQUIREMENTS: CONTROLLING MOTION • Motor shield • Two 6V motors • Two buttons or switches • Solderless bread board • 9V battery • 9V battery connector • Extra wire Figure 3-11.
