Pixy problem with Ardumoto

Added by Mehmet Can Tuncer 5 months ago

I tried hello_world program. It's ok.

I tried to run two motors without pixy. It's ok.

When I tried to run motors (with Ardumoto Shield using 3,11,12,13 pins) and pixy together, the motor B is working always out of control. Motor A is working correctly. I disabled pixy.init(), everything is ok.

What is the problem?

Hello Mehmet,
This is usually due to a low voltage problem. The servos tend to act strangely when there isn't enough voltage. Please see this guide:

Thanks Edward but my problem with DC motors. The link you shared about PanTilt servos. Does it matter?
I use 450mAh 3S Lipo battery in my project. Is this enough for pixy and two dc motors?
