Connect robot servo to RPi and use Java Embedded to program it

Lots of hobbyist like to connect robot arms with servos to the Raspberry Pi via the GPIO port. In my next set of blog posts, I'll cover how to connect a servo to your RPi and use Java Embedded to program it.

It means another Fry's run of course. See, you're getting the hang of this already...

Here's a your shopping list:

  1 - Arduino Compatible LS-0006 
      Servo - Plastic Gear 
      Analog (Medium)

This is available at Fry's Electronics or your local hobby electronics shop. Also, it's at Amazon here. Oh, and don't think we are going to build Data from Star Trek Next Generation (not quite yet). It's going to be more like the driver motor of Twiki's little pinky. ;-)

Interesting... What will it be able to do?

Thanks for the interest. This demo will show the ability to use a Java Embedded app and GPIO on the RPi to move the servo in 10 degree increments through 90 degrees of motion. I'll mount a piece of paper with a design on the arm so that you can see it when it moves.

Maybe I should post a YouTube video of what it can do so that everyone can see what I mean...

Really interesting. I hope next evolution of this tutorial is 'Moving robo with wheels'. But, is that possible to build an agile one with this setup?
