I'm using two vibration motors for my robot and to have it move forward, I have to solder the leads of the motor in the way shown in the picture. Previously when I soldered the leads of both motors the same way, the robot kept turning round and round. Switching the leads of a motor helped solved that, but not completely.
I've noticed that the robot while moving straighter, tends to turn in favor of one direction over the other. This issue is even more apparent when the robot is supposed to turn in a direction responding to a light stimulus. I've noticed that the robot turns much quicker in one direction than the other.
I don't think it's an isolated case, I've assembled a few copies of the robots and all of them exhibit the same bias in turning toward a particular direction over the other. And the that bias is also in the same direction.
So I'm wondering for a vibration motor, do they vibrate the same if a voltage is applied to the leads and then that voltage polarity is reversed?
