Topic: Set a different rotation for each servo (Adafruit 16-channel PWM/Servo Shield) (Read 799 times) previous topic - next topic

Hi everybody,
I need to control a thousand servos by using just a single Arduino Uno, and I'm planning to buy a Adafruit 16-channel PWM/Servo Shield or a  TLC5940.
But I've got a big doubt...is possible to control the rotation of each servo indipendently or I just can send an unique signal ( all the rotations are equal) ????

Thank you in advance !

I Mike do you remember the membrane moved by 100 linear actuator ?!?!?  :) :) :)
Sorry, I made a mistake. HUNDREDS not THOUSANDS  :smiley-roll-sweat:
I need the Arduino code !

That changes things from impossible to just very difficult.

In essence it is just a collection of servo write commands. So it is not difficult for you to write. It is impossible for any one else to write because we do not know what you want to do and what you are doing it with.
