IM using a Micro Maestro 6-Channel.
Hi, Im a total beginner with this and I apologize if Im all over the place Ill try and be concise. IM making an iron man helmet and want to control servos with the micro maestro. Ive figured out basically how to create and run a sequence from the laptop.
Im going to wire a button into channel 0, servo A into channel 1, Servo B into channel 2 (possibly LEDS eyes into channel 3 though it'll probably be easier to run the lights manually with just a switch on a seperate circuit without the pololu)
The way I see it I could have a few possibilities:
Situation A- Top priority
I would like to have the button begin a sequence (open helmet) and push the button again to reverse the sequence, or reset (to close the helmet) whichever brings it back to the starting position the easiest.
...if that isnt easily doable
Situation B- I dont mind using extra buttons if needed
Same as A except a second button in a spare channel to play a closing sequence. button1 runs open command, button2 runs close
Same as A except LED light eyes turn off on open command, and turn back on after close, another button controls lights independently. This would be my most ideal, but it is the most confusing for me to imagine, and most complicated IM sure, so it isnt my top priority
IF anyone in Pololu land could help and paste the most basic script to achieve Situation A or B that I could study, (please assume Im ignorant of programming) and tweak myself with my own actual movement commands I would be forever grateful. And if someone really really patient wants to walk through a possible way to achieve Situation 3 I wouldnt turn that down :).
