This is an example of using the ServoSpeed() command for speed ramping with Continuous Rotation Servos. The ServoSpeed() slowly ramps the PWM between the STOP, FORWARD and REVERSE PWM values. In order for this approach to work, the USE STOP checkbox needs to be selected in the Continuous Rotation Movement Panel.


EZ-Robot Revolution Software Apps include assembly instructions for your robot. When you load a project, the EZ-Builder software will download the required EZ-Bits and ask if you would like to view the assembly instructions. In this lesson, we will explain how the assembly instructions work and teach you to become an expert robot builder! Click here to view the software tutorial.

*Note: When connecting servos to the EZ-B, pay attention to match the colors. Just like your home theater, the BLACK wire of the servo connects to the BLACK side of the EZ-B pins. Here is a video.

Servo Orientation

Keep a close eye on the EZ-Bit's physical features so you can identify the orientation. In this example, notice the direction of the servo with recognizable features of the real physical EZ-Bit in your hand. If you connect an EZ-Bit backward, your robot will behave funny and not work as expected - but might be worth the laugh!
