The Lynxmotion Smart Servos (LSS) are compact, modular actuators which were designed to be an evolution of the standard servo for use in multi degree-of-freedom robots, animatronics, custom robot projects and more.

The servos form the core modules of the next generation Lynxmotion servo Erector Set (S.E.S.) and a wide variety of modular brackets, mechanics and electronics have been designed around them. "Smart" means there is sensor feedback for Position, built-in safety features.

The LSS (LynxMotion Smart Servos) include a servo cable that supports TX and RX which connects directly to an Arduino or EZ-B v4 with Hardware UARTs. This means you can read servo positions in the Auto Position control or through script. The simplicity of the cable and servos makes it very easy to connect and begin using right away.

I was going to ask support for these but you beat me to it! Thanks!

I just saw an article on these and was wondering what it would take to get them working in EZ-B.

We’re talking with lynxmotion about doing a live hack video to demonstrate these servos. Do you have suggestions of what you’d like to see in the hack?
