Bit of a change of pace from the normal graphic design stuff, but i’ve been working with electronics for a couple of months now and am currently working on an MSc project using servo motors to move nails in a pin board. This requires a servo motor to be controlled in 4 directions (I will be using 2 motors) to control a plate which moves pins in a certain direction..
ANYWAY, the point of posting this is that I was unable to find an adequate or complete solution on the web so thought I would provide mine including circuit diagrams.
Things you will need…
Below is a list of the cheap parts that I am using to do this project.
- prototyping board
- wire in three colours
- 2x push buttons – im using ones with four legs
- 2x 220ohm resistors
- Arduino duemilanove board
- usb cable
- standard Servo Motor
this is constructed as follows
