Mojo Mods

testing mojo board with leg
Keith Rowell Design

We've recieved the second ServoMojo board and are modifying our set up routine. Until now we were setting all the motor presets with a terminal program directly to the Mojo, and running a pic grogram to control the Mojo afterward. Bob's plan now is to do all the communication with the Mojo through the pic using a "passthru" scheme for testing, and adding a "setup routine" in the pic code to initialize the Mojo on start up.

The Mojo has the set-up saving features that store servo acceleration, speed, trim, etc. But reading, checking, resetting, these from the controller is a step above the manual procedures we've used so far. Brian Dean of BDMicro has been very helpfull as we learn the in's and out's of the Mojo board. Thanks Brian again for your assistance.
