Here i'll show you how you can control your servo motor using light!

More light, more the speed of servo motor

Step 1: Parts

You will need-

Step 5: Write Code

Burn this code to your board.


Servo myservo;

int val;

void setup() { myservo.attach(9);


void loop() {

val = analogRead(A0);

val = map(val, 0, 1023, 0, 179);
