pan/tilt servo malfunction

Added by shoaib mohamed 2 months ago

Hello,
I recently purchased a pixy and pan/tilt kit but I am having issues with it. The servos go crazy out of control when I try to run the demo from pixymon, also the same case when running it from Arduino. I was using a very short cable of about 1ft long and then I changed to a longer cable of about 3ft and the problem still remains. I have also tried many solutions listed in the forum but nothing helps.

Please help me out on this as soon as possible because I am using pixy for my university project and I need to come up with a solution.

Thanks

Hello Shoaib,
Make sure you're not using a USB hub, or perhaps your servo wires are reversed. Have you seen this guide?

Also make sure that your Pixy has a good lock on the object you are trying to detect.
