-In wich format (Ohm,V) should i use to test the circuit.
-where i shoud connect the servo on the pcb.
Step 5 is a bit tricky - the point is to center the servo - or to configure it so it "stops". If you don't do this then your servo's may not work right. You will want to program your micro with this .hex file: http://www.societyofrobots.com/downloads/hold_servo.hexThat will send the signal to the servo to make "stop". But depending upon where the potentiometer is set, it likely won't be stopped. You'll have to adjust it as shown in the tutorial until you find the sweet spot and then glue it.I would de-bug your electronics first, before building the chassis since you have been focusing on that. The photovore basically looks for the status of the light sensors and drives the servos based off of that. So you should be able to hook up ALL your electronics (2 servos, two sensors) and confirm that the servos change direction when you apply and take away light.Really no need to build the chassis until your electronics are working properly. Sounds like you are there, though, just need to confirm everything.
Need to look wich electronic i should mound now an ideas?
I linked the schematic for the $50 robot in an earlier post - scroll back up and click it. If you are using the Photovore_v1 software, then that source code expects servos and photo-sensors to be plugged in according to that schematic.Let me know if that isn't clear.
The format is pretty simple - just look for the colored dots. Also, it clearly states which microcontroller pin needs to be connected. For example, the photo-sensor outputs go to pins 27 and 28 - it clearly says 27 and 28.Regarding a 4.8 battery, that does not make sense to me. You don't need multiple battery sources, one 9v is sufficient.
Well look at the "motor" 2 pins beside the 9v input, that circuit doesn't have a power supply. it's confusing
