Joystick Y Axis To Control 2 Modified Servos?

Hello,

Is it Possible for the Joystick to control 2 servos when the +y or -Y is moved? I am driving a track robot with 2 modified servos.

Thanks!

Are you using the Modified servo Movement Panel?

Hello,

I am using the Joystick Control within ARC. Modified servo control works with keyboard but does not appear to work with a joystick.

Thanks!

Are you using the Modified servo Movement Panel or Modified servo Control?

There are two different ones. A modified servo control will only allow you to move one servo forward or reverse and doesn't connect to anything else.

A Modified servo Movement Panel allows two servos to be controlled for direction. Once one is added, the joystick panel will automatically control it. Make sure the checkbox is checked in the Config section of the joystick control to enable the movement panel.

For more information, click the QUESTION MARK (?) on the Modified servo Movement Panel to read help about it and watch a video of how to use it. -OR- click here: www.ez-robot.com/Tutorials/Default.aspx?id=12

Thanks DJ that helped. I left the modified servo Movement Panel x and y blank and it works. Question though. I would like to control the modified servos with the analog control. Can this be done?

you can create a script to do that. determine the ADC Values for the direction and voila. Add a script control and take a look at the manual (found in the config of script control).

Hello DJ

I am able to use the Joystick control and get the modified servos to move foward correctly if I move the joystick in the +X and +Y direction evenly. I need to rotate my joystick 45 degrees and it all works great:) Would there be an easy to not need to rotate my joystick?

Thanks again. I am very new at this and need step by step:)

Change the order of the servos in the Modified servo Panel.:) If forward goes reverse, that's because the servos are opposite.

Hello,

What is the script to determine what output the joystick is at for analog signal?

I would like to have a the output correlate to the speed of 2 modified servos.

Thanks!
