Circuit Connections

DHT22 connected to pin# 2 on ESP8266 thing dev board
Gas sensor connected to ADC pin

And here are the connection from the ESP8266 Dev board to the Sparkfun motor driver(TB6612FNG),
PWMA on the motor driver to pin# 13
AIN1 to pin# 0
AIN2 to pin# 4
PWMB to pin# 15
BIN1 to pin# 14
BIN2 to pin# 5

Then connect the left motor pins to A1 and A2
And connect the right motor to pin B1 and B2
