Have Jd Turn Towards An Object

I have progressed in my project to the point that, if I tell JD to find the red ball, he scans the area around him (turning his head left and right ) until he finds the red ball. My next step is to have JD turn so that the ball is straight ahead of him (in the center grid). I am hoping not to have to reinvent the wheel if someone has done this. I...

Shoulder Servos Dont Move
