need servo and vbasic stamp help ?

(1/1)

ltmhall:
Iím Building an autonomous mobile robot using differential drive and have a few questions. Iím using two Hitec 422 servo motors, a Basic Stamp II (education board), two Dubro 2.75 in. wheels, and a NARP 4cm omni direction wheel.

1)† †If Iím using two HS 422 servo motors and a Basic Stamp II do I need an H-bridge. I was planning on connecting my servo motors to an L293 chip then connecting the L293 to a Basic Stamp, but a classmate told me I didnít need one, I could connect the servos straight to the Basic Stamp. Please Help!

2)† †If I need to connect my servos to an H-bridge do I actually open my modified servos and connect the two pins of the motor to the H-bridge.

3)† †I read a regular caster is a very great ideal for the third wheel, does anyone know a good way to mount an omni directional wheel to an aluminum chassis.

Servos have their own built in circuitry, which is why I highly recommend them. Your classmate is right, no H-bridge required. Just give the servo between 4 and 6 volts power, and a square wave signal to the signal line (which is where you connect the stamp to), and thats it!

For the omniwheel castor, there are many ways to attach it. One would be get a long rod, put the omniwheel in the center, then bend the rod into a U shape. Then attach the two ends of the U to the robot chassis.
