Hi I am new to Arduino and I would like to build a 17 DOF robot.
I started with one leg which has 3 servos attached to it.
Completed project should look like this:
The legs will look like this:
In my project I am using 4XAA NiMH 1.2v/2400 mAh batteries
I have Arduino Mega 2560 board.
On a breadboard I attached the +/- cabling which goes to the 4xAA bateries. Also I get a reading from ohm meter.
On another breadboard I build the signaling for each servo and that goes to Arduino.
When I run 2 servos everything works fine. When I run the 3rd servo I do not get enough juice. The ohm meter reading goes close to 4v. Less then 5-4.8v.
With this 17 DOF robot Of course I will not run all servos similtanously but to run the project smoothly, What do you suggest for power?
I would attach pictures of my project but I just dismantled everything. Sorry
Thanks in advance for the advice.
