Servo Speed control

so ive got a project where one of our objectives is to control the speed of a servo motor using feedback from an absolute encoder. im really new to arduino and controls in general so i am inexperienced with this stuff to say the least.

any suggestions or insight would be very helpful.

thanks, MT

A hobby servo already has feedback from an absolute encoder (a pot).

A bit more info on what you are exactly trying to do would help giving a better answer. :-/

Assuming your "absolute encoder" is returning a value from 0 to 255, you can use that value directly for the positioning of the servo. Servo motors are not set by speed, but by position. If you want the servo to go slow, you need to integrate sleep commands in your loop that sets the servo position.
