General Question

So after much fidling i have managed to blow up my sparkfun H bridge, oh well i hated the damn thing anyways so i have butchered an earlier bot i built and used the sabertooth H bridge controller i have, great.....nope for some reason the sabertooth doesnt understand the way that the modified servo panel works, but no issue i just made scripts to get the pins to run as ordinary servos which works great, i also used the movement script panel to setup which script to call for forward motion etc etc, but my question is how do i now call to that movement script from another script ? ie if i make a say autonomous script how do i get that script to call for forward say from the movement script ... hope that makes sense to you guys it does in my head but thats just me lol...


Thanks
Kurt

There are examples under File -> Examples

You will be using ControlCommand()

Have you tried using the sabertooth with a regular servo control when it is in R/C mode? There might be a bug in sabertooth's R/C mode and it doesn't recognize pulse widths over or under a specific value. All servos are different for pulse width. That is why the EZ-B has a wide range. You can look at the tutorial page to see screenshots of my calibration

well i have it working by writing a script for forward motion for example, i figured out that the sabertooth does work fine if using standard servo inputs ie in script i have just put Servo(D1, 50) Servo(D2, 50) and he moves forward, setting bothports to 35 stops the motors and setting to 20 goes backwards, its good because i can control the speed, same for left and right turn etc etc, the only annoying thing is i have to press the start button on each script to manually control him instead of just using a movement panel. How do you calibrate the modified servo panel ??? have you a link for that tutorial plzzz, at least its working though.
