Motivation

We undertook this project to learn more about hacking servos and using matlab to control servo motors.


Description

We created a servo vehicle using two hacked servo motors that could be controlled using potentiometers ("pot box")

to control the speed and direction of each servo. We accomplished this by converting the inputs of the potentiometers to strings that we sent to the servos. By doing this the car will respond to the movement of the potentiometer knobs.
