Servo controller

What I selected

The servo Controller is a Torobot 32 servo controller.

Why I selected it

I selected it because:

  1. It was inexpensive
  2. It supports lots of servos. I didn't want to run out of capacity
  3. It has USB VCOM and UART interfaces (i.e., might be able to use it in other projects)
  4. It looked easy to inject servo power into

Working with it

It took a bit of effort to find the document describing how to use it. Short version: very easy to use. It's a simple text protocol where you id a servo, specify its target position, and how fast to go there. That simple.

So far it works well enough.
