Lua_2W_Motor: 2 wheel motor library for Lua running on wireless router
This is a motor library for Lua running on wireless router which flashed with OpenWrt firmware. It allows a wireless router control the motors without using micro-controller. This library works on any dual-full-bridge driver such as L298.
Each motor require two GPIOs for controlling, therefore 2 motors will use up 4 GPIOs. Most of the wireless router may not have enough GPIO to control the motors, but you can use other pin on the router such as the LED pin, this require to unload the leds_gpio module.
