Completely new to this stuff. For context, I am trying to connect 3 DC motors that probably are 12v. I haven't bought them yet, they will definitely be more than 5v. I want to be able to control all three motors from my pi.
In my head, I am thinking it would go like this. I will need three L298N's, one for each motor. I understand how you can use those motor drive controllers to power and interact with the motor from the pi but I am not understanding how I can use one single power source for all three motors. I want to use the micro usb to power the pi and a single power source for the motors.
Essentially, I need to power three 5v+ motors and control them each directionally from my pi. Would using three motor drivers be the way to do this? How can I power them all from one source?
Thank you for any insight at all, I appreciate it more than you know
