I am fairly new to the Pololu, but not to robotics and other controllers.
I recently made a fairly long script for one of the machines I’ve built, but in the sequence editor, I have the “init” state of the servos, the known state they start from.
However, when powering my Maestro 6 on, it moves all servos to the start position as quickly as posible and then waits for the input of the script to actually start.
My question is: Is it possible to create a startup subprocedure that when powered on, senses the position of the servos and moves them to the start position, but in a more controlled manner, say with speed control and certain order of moving the servos?
When my machine have been powered down properly, it is not an issue, as my script ends in start position, and as long as no one moves the servos by hand, or someone trips over the power cord in the middle of the sequence, it will always start in the same position.
But, I want to cater for the “what if” situation.
If servo 3 is in the “wrong” position at start, can I make it go my init state slowly before the other servos go to their init state?
I hope I make myself clear…
