Servo motor control

I have been experimenting with servo motors. (Basically, a servo is a motor that can move to a specified position generally between 0 and 180 degrees.) In this example, each motor communicates with a potentiometer connected through the arduino. The arduino serves as a translator between the servo and potentiometer. The potentiometer creates a resistance value between 0 and 1023 and the arduino translates that value into the degree in which the servo rotates.P1013486.JPGTwo_servos.pde
