Lego test jig for testing leg motors with Servo Mojo (in the foreground)
Our tests with the PIC and the servo Jig were, after a short detour with the wrong baud rate, successful today. ASCII "motion files" were uploaded to the PIC from the PC using RealTerm. And the program was successfully played back from the pic to the ServoMojo with correct servo motion on the Lego Jig. The Lego test fixture is just a crude mock-up that we use for testing... Next week we'll take a movie of the Lego Jig in action, and do a demonstration for the AHRC monthly meeting. Thanks to Bob for the photos... movie here (1.37m).
