[DIY] Animatronic Eyes

Posted August 11, 2011 by Chris

Ready for the next Animatronics Tutorial for robotics month? This week, we’re building Animatronic Eyes using an improvised 2-axis gimbal system. Realistic robotic eyes are difficult to build but this pair of eyes creates quite a decent illusion. Pico/Micro Hobby Servos are used as actuators and standard MDF board for building material.

    Thank you for this great electronic experience but,
    as far as I can program my PIC 18F452, none of my servo motors
    are moving … I can test voltage on each of them but they do not move. The pic receives voltage on its ports, the led is up, the regulator is working fine.
    What can I do to make the whole thing work ???
    Thanks a lot for your response.
