Hi:

I'm a gr. 10 student with little experience in programming. I would  like to control  panning/tilting with servos. I am not familiar with the basic commands for panning and tilting- is there any code that I could look over to understand the basics?

Thanks for your help

Pan and tilting refer to the way the servo is mounted, nothing in software that's special.

You would do well to read:

hi:

thanks so much for your help. I'm trying to use GPS to control the position (servos) moving a joystick, that would be used to guide a blind person.
Thanks for your help with the servo part, which looks reasonably straightforward. How can I extract the GPS coordinates to move the servos? Are there any references I can go to for this?

Thanks

I don't think you connected the grounds, Dave.

A good place to start might be the Playground.
Or Google.
