I am starting a project where I will need to control 24 servos autonomously by way of touch, light, and motion sensors. I will be purchasing all of my materials at once and need to make sure that they are all compatible.
Right now the plan is to use the Arduino Mega 2560 R3 to control the Mini Maestro 24-Channel USB Servo Controller that will then control the servos. The servos I have are of various sizes but all rated at 6 volts (some are digital while others are analog). I also have the SmartWAV intelligent Embedded Audio Processor to output sound.
Will these components work well together?
What sensors are best to work with Arduino and do I need a shield?
What battery should I look for? I'm guessing a 6 volt battery with the ability to discharge 20 amps.
What types of wires and connections do I need to connect all of this together?
Thanks for the help!
