sir I have used the Arduino Uno, and operate the servo motor and after "releasing all servo motor" and "get & set all position", I am not able get those angle values  . what should I do? please guide me.


Do you have the RX and TX of the robotis dynamixel servos connected to the arduino?


do you have to use  robotis dynamixel servos?


ok, I only have  MG996R 55g Metal Gear Torque Digital servo Motors and Ez-robot  servos HDD

I was thinking, maybe you can add the PCA9685 for 16 servos module to you Compatible Robot Hardware

works great with ARC and the Arduino (your firmware I modified)
