I am just beginning to do a project to aim a laser pointer using two servos, one for the x axis and one for the y axis. I am looking for a very basic C++ program that will help me to understand how to send coordinate info to each servo through usb and a micro maestro using XP and visual studio. Everything I have seen so far seems too complicated or vague, suggesting I need some prior knowledge that I do not have. Eventually I will use a webcam to search either for motion or a specific target and aim the laser at that.
I have successfully controlled both servos with the Pololu Maestro Control Center. Now I want to understand what a function or method might look like that the motion detection software would call to position the servos.
