Introduction: Servos Pan and Tilt With Joystick
Basically I wrote a small code to control servo's with an analog joystick.
I wrote it because I couldn't any or any explanation how to do it (or I didn't search right), and that's also why I'm uploading it.
This is my first upload ever here so bare with me.
I wanted to move a camera on the top of the stand towards something that moves,
While that project is on halt right now, I had this as prove of concept I guess so I knew how to hook up the servo's and test movement and strength.
In my schematic I used two power sources because if you move a servo it sometimes drains to much power and shuts down the arduino. But you can also use a capacitor and there are some examples out there on Google. the servo's I used use 9v anyway so I chose that, but some run fine on 5v that the arduino delivers.
I used a different joystick in the schematic but this was the most similar I could find. it basicly works the same. you got a 5v + a - and Y and X, the Y is for tilting up and down and X for panning left and right.
Well I hope this helps I don't know what else to say about it.
Ask any questions and I'll try to respond as fast I can.
