Arduino 360 Servo Control Not Possible?

23 views (last 30 days)
I am not sure how to control a 360 servo connected to an Arduino with MATLAB. The example here is for an 180 degree servo and I also understand that there is a Simulink Support Package for continuous servo writing here. I am not using Simulink for my project. How do I control this servo motor?

In the example for a 180 degree servo, this line is used to control the angle;
writePosition(s, angle);
For the 360 deg servo you cannot send a command for angle, only for speed. Use:
writePosition(s, 90);
for full speed rotation and
writePosition(s, 0);
to stop the servo.

Hi,
MATLAB Support Package for Arduino Hardware supports only 180 degrees Servo.
To use 360 degrees Servo please use Custom Addon library as mentioned in this link,
