Topic: Servo position value, can it be real number? (Read 927 times) previous topic - next topic

As the topic says, can a value of a Servo position be a real number like 43.5 and not integer??
Code: [Select]

myservo.write(43.5);

I didn't know where to post this question, whether here or at "motors" part of the arduino forum. Thanks!

No.

If you need finer control, you can use the writeMicroseconds method.
However, asking for fractional degree accuracy of an R/C servo may be asking a bit much.

You might add 0.5 to get proper rounding

float angle = 43.4;
myservo.write(angle + 0.5);  ==> 43 degrees

float angle = 43.6;
myservo.write(angle + 0.5);  ==> 44 degrees
