Topic: ADVICE: One joystick controlling two motors (Read 638 times) previous topic - next topic

I am designing and manufacturing a crane for my thesis. I want it to operate with a motor on each of its axes and a fourth motor to open and close its claw. So far I have only been able to find examples of arduino programs online of one joystick controlling one motor. What would be the correct program code for this arduino?

But apart from that, you should look at a couple of things to help you get started with motors. This explains direction and speed control of DC motors and this is about controlling a servo with a pot. If you get a joystick like this one you can easily manage two servos at once, and maybe use the button as the claw release.

No PMs for help please.
DO NOT power servos from Arduino 5V: give them their own power and connect the grounds.
