Arduino Servomotor using Potentiometer
The Potentiometer will be used to control the position of the servo motor. The connection will be similar to the last servo motor project, except the added Potentiometer.
Let's start with the project with Arduino.
The components required for the project are listed below:
Mini Servo Motor: It is defined as a tiny motor that can approximately rotate up to 180 degrees. It works similar to the usual servo motor, but smaller in size.
The project allows us to control the shaft at angles between 0 and 180 degrees. We can also set the rotation of the shaft at different speeds.
Servo motor has three terminals signal, power, and ground.
Structure of the project
The structure of the connection or project is shown below:
Consider the below code:
Steps to upload the code to the board
The steps are listed below:
We can also modify the code to modify the performance of the servo motor accordingly.
The steps to set up the connection are listed below:
We will show the connection using the Simulator so that the connections become clearer and more precise.
We can make the same connection using the hardware devices.
The shaft will rotate at angles between 0 and 180 degrees and again in the reverse direction.
We can also modify the code by specifying it only in one direction from 0 to 180 degrees. Hence, we can make changes according to the requirements.
