If my calibration values are 680 open and 430 closed what values should i use to get the servos to function? Ill send pics of the code manipulation we used. This is for the glove.
Like i said we had movement of a single servo with the values entered above but now with the values shown above we have no movement on any servos.
Yes the first day we tested a single flex sensor with a single servo connected to the arduino and it communicated and operated properly through wireless signal. We then built the remaining project, added the shield with the 8 servo connectors and finished the glove. We get the open/closed readouts on the serial monitor but no movement on any servos off that shield. We use approx 12 volts for the servos shield and 4 volts for the glove. We also used all the same resistance values for the voltage divider on the glove. Here is a picture of the glove with the rx/TX disconnected for programming.
Question. We have created a very similar project using the codes you have listed. Test functions are good with the glove and the arduino uno board, but the motor shield that you are using is not driving the motors, actually it will not recognize the code you provided. It looks as if the code you wrote does not include the code for the shield ie: servo1_pwm - servo5_pwm . We are pretty stuck right now on this project. If we use a standard arduino shield we can get individual servos to run but that shield is not stable to push 5 servos, but with the shield you recommended to use there is absolutely no movement of the servos.
