Mini Maestro serial communication via Matlab

I am running servos from a 24 channel Maestro, I can send serial commands to move the servo’s but I cannot get the board to send back the servo’s position. Does anyone know how to do this?


You can use the serial command GET_POSITION to get the position of a channel in a script. You can find more information about this command in the “Serial Servo Commands” section of the Maestro user’s guide. Please note, this returns the last position command the servo was given and not the actual position the servo is at. RC servos do not give access to their feedback loop, so getting the actual position of the servo arm would require an additional sensor for position.
