The robots I built previously were all similar to the 4WD Kit from amazon. With these kits it's easy to use an H-Bridge breakout similar to this and using a perfboar to solder to the connections to the MCU or Rpi3.
My current project is an RC snow plow bot, which is a bit bigger. I am using this 43A motor driver, and this scooter motor I got from a scrapped mobility scooter; and rear steering using a servo.
I plan to use the ESP32 MCU along with that BTS7960 driver. There will also be an Nvidia TX2 with ROS2 installed that will interface with the ESP32 over UART.
Obviously I cannot use breadboard jumpers for this, so what's a good solid way to do this, without having to create a PCB.
Are the perfboard / permaproto the best options? Does not seem so to me since the motor driver is so large, but I admit I am inexperienced in this area.
What are other options without using a printed PCB?
