Connecting a servo motor to an Arduino board provides the ability to control its movement through code. This project requires just a few components and wiring connections.
First, connect the 5V power supply to the Arduino board. Verify it provides the proper voltage and current for the specific Arduino model to avoid damage.
Next, connect the three servo wires to the breadboard:
In the Arduino code, include the servo library. Use functions like servo.write() to specify the angle for servo movement. Set angles in the code to make the servo rotate to desired positions.
Following basic wiring and coding steps allows Arduino to safely drive servo motors for DIY projects. The servo will move based on the angles specified in the sketch.
