  • Arduino Obstacle Avoidance Robot (NEW SCHEMATIC)

    Hey,No, it will not require a different code unless the component has different connections from the components I've been using (i.e. instead of 3 ports there are 4)

    Arduino Obstacle Avoidance Robot

    Hi,Here is the link to the code of the entire robot if it is what you're asking for:https://docs.google.com/document/d/1EULUhXL978xHmIlP4cErjugKC0JFe9WlI5DHhfoc7zo/edit?pli=1So a servo is a little like a regular dc motor except that servos are easier to program with a microcontroller. That is one of the biggest differences of it. They usually come in micro, standard and giant size. Servos usually have a 180 degree freedom of rotation but there are also fully rotating 360 degree freedom of rotation servos out on the market, like the Parallax Continuous servo motor, which I used 2 on my Obstacle Avoidance Robot.The servo that I used on the robot all came with three connecting wires, but other types may come with 4 connecting wires. The three main connecting wires are GND (ground), 5V (pow...

The three main connecting wires are GND (ground), 5V (power), and SIG (signal from microcontroller). GND wires are usually colored black. 5V wires are usually colored red, and SIG wires can come in white or yellow depending on the brand.5V usually connects with the 5V pins on microcontrollers. GND usually connects to GND on microcontrollers, and SIG usually connect with the numbered output pins, usually digital.Hoped that helped!
