ServoCds55 library for Digital dynamixel servo Shield

userHead cecbucher 2018-07-04 17:31:18 5386 Views5 Replies

I just bought the digital dynamixel servo shield for Arduino in order to control my AX-12A dynamixel motors. The library ServoCds55 doesn't provide all commands available from the dynamixel motors.
How could I for example have a feedback on the position of the motors?
Thanks for your help!

Thanks for your links!
Yes, for setting new ids.. or even working with different ids doesn't seem to work straight out of the box. Here a post about this issue:
... with no ansers :-(

Robotis started to develop an arduino shield for the dynamixels, but it is still in development. Here the link to my post and their answer: ... no=2406886

I have never tried the Arbotix-M Robotcontroller, but we'have been using the openCM9.04 so far.
Good luck!!

2018-07-08 09:48:29 The more I look into this the more I think this shield is a failure. I can't find any support or information for it. Was probably a waste of money. I'm replacing it with a ArbotiX-M Robocontroller, this seems to have a ton of users and support. userHeadPic zukethenuke

2018-07-08 06:22:15 Hi there, I'm in the same boat you are. I have the shield and 3 ax-12 motors and I'm trying to figure out how to daisy chain them and set ID's and all that. I just found a tutorial series on YouTube that looks good. Here's the link: ... yMjctnkFQf
