Tracking And Servos Need Help

 
#1

I'm working on a product that requires tracking with two sets of servos. One set the camera is attached to and moves left and right and the other up and down (X and Y).
I have another set of servos also X and Y that i want to follow or shadow the same motion as the camera servos.

I've tried everything in EZB that I could think of to try and get this to work. I added multiservo within the setup of the tracking to no avail. I end up with the shadow servos barely moving or moving to an extreme position and staying there. I need to understand the ratio setting better, but I tried all types of numbers and fractions and still no results. I also tried relative servo and got the same results. They seem similar and I think they were basically doing the same thing as in the tracking window.

Its pretty important that i get this to work. Even if i have to create (ha i mean copy) a script to get the function

Have you pushed the MUTLI SERVO button when selecting the servo?

Yeah. I set up my other servos in multiservo, but all i get is the servos going to an extreme position, like max in the x and do not move. I'm not sure how the ratio works. But i tries 1:1, 1:2 etc, and even tried fractions ie .5

I can see the other servoes move now. But ever so slowly. How can if make the shadow servos move twice or three times faster. Can I use ratio. How does this multiplier work?

#5

Multiplier of 1 is perfect

Make sure you set the Max and Min values. So that Max is greater than MIN.

#6

Yup all done correctly. Double checked everything. The motion is very slight compared to the bigger motion of the camera servos. I was hoping for a multiplier that would allow the slave servos to move faster or slower than the master.

#7

Are you sure the servo is working?

Can you screenshot me your Multi Servo window?

#8

Yeah the servos are working. I have them set up on servo pad and they work fine. My eyes are crossed been working all day and computers off. I will snap a screen shot of the multiservo tomorrow. thanks for the help tonight.

Does the multi servo work with a horizontal servo control?

Well I got something working but I had to do some pretty odd things. In short I had to change the incremental steps to 10 to speed up the slave servos so i could see them move. I then added speed control for the master servos and slowed them down. The slaves servos now look like they are shadowing the masters in speed and actually a bit faster which is what i wanted. I think on the default 2 and 3 incremental steps was just not fast enough to see the movement of the slaves.
