Probably the simplest, reversible drive circuit is the H-Bridge. Some BEAMbots use H-bridge motor drivers; many more use an H-bridge variant of some sort. Here's a simple conceptual schematic: Image A basic H-Bridge has 4 switches, relays, transistors, or other means of completing a circuit to drive a motor. In the above diagram, the switches are labeled A1, A2, B1, B2. Since each of the four switches can be either open or closed, there are 24 = 16 combinations of switch settings. Many are not useful and in fact, several should be avoided since they short out the supply current (e.g., A1 and B2 both closed at the same time). There are four combinations that are useful:
