This paper describes the design and implementation of stepper motor control system based on Internet of Things (IoT). Due to the development of digital control systems, hybrid stepper motors became more attractive to be used in robotics and computer numerical control machines, where they have to perform high-precision positioning operations without any feedback sensor. The objective of the present paper is to use NodeMcu aWiFi integrated microcontroller to control actuators like stepper motor through IoT.
