Can a Picaxe "Read" Servo Outputs?
November 10, 2008
So I am playing with a RF radio control system. For one instance, it is a perfect set-up just to have a pot stuck on to a servo (all the outputs on the receiver are servo outputs) and the pot data to be fed into an ADC on my picaxe. Now, seeing that I have a total of 8 channels on the RC unit, 8 individual servos, 8 pots and 8 ADC inputs is just not feasable.
I know that servos run off of little pulses, I'm sure there is a way to have a Picaxe "read" these pulses and execute a chunk of code. Any thoughts? There is a "count" code that will count pulses within a given time, maybe that is a way to go...?
At any rate, give me any thoughts you have and I would give my right kidney for some chunks of code.
