I am a complete newbie to this, I have searched forums and google but can’t find the answer to my query so apologies if reposting something… I have tried to find out!
I have just brought the Micro Maestro 6 channel controller which I have got working with a few servos, that is all fine (pololu.com/catalog/product/1350)
But I wanted to add some kind of sensor to the set up, so when you get within a certain distance of the sensor, it sets off the servos. I was wondering if a) is this possible with the maestro I have and b) what parts do I need to buy and what type of sensor would I need?
It would also be great to know if there is a type of sensor that could control how much the servos moves… i.e. the closer you get to the sensor, the more the servo will move. I have been advised that an Ultrasonic sensor would do this, and have found this one (I am UK based):
hobbytronics.co.uk/srf02-ult … angefinder
But have no idea how to connect any kind of sensor to the Maestro, and what components I would need to do this.
I would greatly appreciate any advice on this as I have spent hours hunting and haven’t found anything that seems relevant…
