C# coding for 1061 AdvancedServo Controller

Postby Audaray » Tue Mar 08, 2016 10:38 am

Hello everyone :)

I wonder if you can help.
I am creating a pan and tilt system. I have 2 Hitec 322HD servos attached to a 1061_0 Servo Controller, in a pan and tilt mount with a webcam on top. I am using a Tobii EyeX to control them using UI buttons in Unity; if you look at the 'look right' button, the servo setup with camera on top should pan right, etc. What I can't get to work, however, is only one servo will activate - I can't seem to open 2 simultaneously. Here is a snippet of my code :

Code: Select all

public class AngleController : MonoBehaviour {

   double pos;
   public float increment;

   AdvancedServo panServo = new AdvancedServo();
   AdvancedServo tiltServo = new AdvancedServo();

   public    GazeAwareComponent LookRight; //Declared eyex components
   public  GazeAwareComponent LookLeft;

   public    GazeAwareComponent LookUp;
   public  GazeAwareComponent LookDown;

   void Start () {

      panServo.Attach += new AttachEventHandler (panServo_Attach); //

      tiltServo.Attach += new AttachEventHandler (tiltServo_Attach); //

   .... //I removed the event handler section here to shorten my post. There are positionchange, attach, detach and error handlers.

      pos = 30.00;

      panServo.open ();
      tiltServo.open ();

      panServo.waitForAttachment (1000);
      tiltServo.waitForAttachment (1500);

      panServo.servos [0].Engaged = true;
      tiltServo.servos [4].Engaged = true;

      if (panServo.Attached && tiltServo.Attached) {
         panServo.servos [0].Position = pos;
         tiltServo.servos [4].Position = pos;
         Debug.Log ("Started");

If I change the order of panServo.open(); and tiltServo.open(); , then tilt servo will activate, and pan servo will not. The opposite is true when panServo comes first. I don't know how to solve this issue - if anyone could help me with where I've gone wrong, I'd be very grateful!

Since both motors are connected to one controller, you only need one AdvancedServo object. Open just one, and then set the position of servos[0] and servos[4] of that same object.

Return to “C#.NET”
