conveyor system is widely used in industries which make work easier and faster. Controlling conveyor is an important and essential task. This paper suggest the prototype design of controlling the conveyor as mostly conveyors are running through DC motor and the most appropriate technique to control DC motor is through PWM. Many controllers have built-in PWM feature which is very helpful and user friendly to use. In this paper simulation and experimental work is used to demonstrate the DC motor controlling through arduino Uno (atmega 328) and it also includes the comparison with published results.
