this is cool i am getting to know how to use the arduino a little better, though i am still having to use allot of its demos still i am learning how to do some more things. i figured out how to use a pot on a anolog input to control a servo so that is cool.
i hope i can do a few more things like this soon though, and learn how to write the programs from scratch. but i have always had a hard time learning grammer or anything like it. though i can read it and under stand for the most part what it dose, i find it allot harder to write the code in the proper format. but i will learn slowly and bit by bit.
here is the code i used from the demo
// Controlling a servo position using a potentiometer (variable resistor)
// by Michal Rinott
Servo myservo; // create servo object to control a servo
int potpin = 0; // analog pin used to connect the potentiometer
int val; // variable to read the value from the analog pin
myservo.attach(9); // attaches the servo on pin 9 to the servo object
val = analogRead(potpin); // reads the value of the potentiometer (value between 0 and 1023)
val = map(val, 0, 1023, 0, 179); // scale it to use it with the servo (value between 0 and 180)
myservo.write(val); // sets the servo position according to the scaled value
delay(15); // waits for the servo to get there
