I am currently working on a project where I would like a servo to be triggered by a motion senor.
The mechanism will be used for relatively long periods, having it powered by 240v so it can be plugged into the wall would be ideal. I imagine I could use a PIR montion sensor that's wired to an Arduino board that then controls a servo. I also imagine it's a lot easier to write that last sentence than to achieve.
Essentially I want to be able to plug the project in, and then when someone walks past it activates the servo.
For the servo I would need the it to move a few kilos, and I would need to be able to adjust the speed of it for example fast in one direction and slowly for its return to the starting position. I would also like to be able to make the servo turn 360 degrees, it doesn't have to spin continuously, but I would like to have the ability to make it turn a full 360.
I haven't started building, so if anyone has ideas regarding if this is possible, and some insights that would be brilliant.
