Description

Returns the position of the servo at the specified port. This function returns the physical position of the servo returned by the servo. This function was meant to work with servos which accept bi-directional communication (e.g. Dynamixel, LewanSoul).

  • If the servo being queried has a communication issue, the last set position will be returned
