POTENTIOMETER-CONTROLLED SERVO

POTENTIOMETER-CONTROLLED SERVO

This project allows you to adjust the position of a servo motor using an potentiometer. A potentimoter is a type of resistor that can be used to change the amount of resistance by turning the knob. This concept can be used to create an robotic arm and many more complex physical computing projects. This relates to engineering because software and hardware developers use micro controllers and microprocessors to build and invent new things with physical computing. The video below explains how it works and the wiring.
