1 using the servo library living with the lab Libraries are computer programs written to add functionality to Arduino programs. A library to control hobby servos is included by default in the Arduino IDE... you already have this library on your computer. A host of libraries are available for Arduino, some must be downloaded separately. See for some of the available libraries.www.arduino.cc/en/Reference/Libraries © 2012 David Hall

3 review – manual creation of pulses 3 living with the lab void loop() { digitalWrite(3, HIGH); delayMicroseconds(1700); // hold pin 3 high for 1700ms or 1.7ms digitalWrite(3, LOW); // hold pin 3 low for 20ms delay(20); } these lines of code make the servo go full speed counter clockwise time (milliseconds) voltage (V) 5V - 0V - 20ms full speed clockwise full speed counter clockwise pulse width varies between 1.3ms and 1.7ms pulse width (μs) servo action 1300full speed CW 1400½ speed CW 1500stopped 1600½ speed CCW 1700full speed CCW

4 using the servo library living with the lab #include Servo myservo1; void setup() { myservo1.attach(2); myservo1.writeMicroseconds(1700); } void loop() { } void setup(){ pinMode(2,OUTPUT); } void loop() { digitalWrite(2, HIGH); delayMicroseconds(1700); digitalWrite(2, LOW); delay(20); } both programs below cause a servo attached to pin 2 to continuously spin full speed CCW put this statement in your program to use library... don’t forget the space “declare” the name of your servo as “myservo1”... can choose any name indicate that servo will be wired to pin 2 send a pulse of 1700 μs or 1.7ms out pin 2 this program continues to send pulses to the servo so that it continues to run almost all of the execution time is spent on the delay(20) function... and you can’t do anything else while this is happening writeMicroseconds(1700) continues to send pulses to the servo unless the myservo1.detach() function is called you could also send writeMicroseconds(1500) to stop the motion of the servo without detaching it when using the servo library, you can do other things, like check whisker status, while the servo is running 4
