Servos and Robotic Arms

A quick discussion on how servos work and typical uses. Then we’ll dive into how to control servos with a Netduino micro-controller and some C# code.  Finally we’ll assemble a Robotic Arm Kit made with 4 servos and 3D printed parts. I’ll have 4 Robotic Arm kits to assemble and give away. You can purchase the 4 servos for $15 if you need them. 

Bring your Netduino & Laptop and let’s have some fun.

    I showed Randy what I did with one of his robot arms and he thought others might like to see it.... I hooked a couple of the servos up to my Raspberry PI and wired up a laser on the end of it. I then wrote an ASP.NET MVC app that hosts a simple web page and a WebAPI service which run on the Raspberry PI. This allows control of the robot arm and laser using either the web page or with a game controller. See it in action here

    Here is the Sample code and Schematic for tonight's meeting . You'll need the free Fritzing app to view the schematic

    My servos came in today so we'll have enough to build all 4 kits during the presentation. Should be a fun hand's on lab.
