Re: Gertbot

Hello, You do not need to further concern yourself using the servos, I've been told, it's a pointless ordeal using your board trying to control using your pins, as there are some left when plugging in your board. We just set some of the pins to GPIO and use PWM control fromthe GPIO toolbox on Python...

Re: Gertbot

Hi,
Using the following commands, I observe no movement, nor locking of the servo:
gb.servo_config(BOARD,0,0,0,0,1000,2000)
gb.servo_pos(BOARD,0,500)

tell me if there's any issues with my writing of the lines.

Thanks a lot for your time.

Re: Gertbot

Hello, First of all, thanks a lot about your quick response. I'm sorry I haven't had much time to either test it or come back to you on my tests. I must confess I'm still not quite familiar with the parameters speed, ramp and flags, especially the last one, in servo_config(board,channel,speed,ramp,f...

Re: Gertbot

First, thanks for your quick answer The issue, as I forgot to mention, is that I'm trying to not use the GUI as the final product is to be totally autonomous, where the inputs for your commands would be given through EKFs, and so, I was trying to not use it. If you recommend using it at first so I c...

Gertbot and servocontrol

Hi, I'm currently working on a proect that requires me to use the Gertboard to control a servo on which a camera will be fixed. However, in your latest installment of the manual, very little is said about this mode, and not much more can be understood through your Python / C code commenting. So I'm ...
