Servo

Demonstration setup for the GWS S03N STD servo connected to NI myRIO MXP.
In this project, students learn the about the operation, interface, and control of standard and continuous operation servos. In the activity, students connect servo motors to myRIO and use LabVIEW to control rotational position via PWM. Through these activities, students follow steps to demonstrate correct operation of the servo, watch videos involving theory, and participate in a short activity after each video.
