This project demonstrates the code for servo motor sweep example on virtual Arduino simulator from wokwi.

Servo motor basics

Servo motors are very much user-friendly compared to other motors. The programming is easy. The software drivers are easily available. 

The Servo motors consist of a small intelligent comparator inside which can be programmed using a PWM signal. The angle of rotation is controlled by the pulse width oh the PWM signal. What this means is, even if there is a slight offset in the rotation angle (due to the load or due to a small shock) it will be corrected sooner. This Servo motor feature makes it a good candidate for several applications such as robotic arms, dispensers and more. 

The Servo motor element is present in the wokwi Arduino simulator. Click here to see the element properties

  val = map(val, 0, 1023, 0, 180);     // scale it to use it with the servo (value between 0 and 180)
  myservo.write(val);                  // sets the servo position according to the scaled value
  delay(15);                           // waits for the servo to get there

#include <Servo.h>

Servo myservo;  // create servo object to control a servo
// twelve servo objects can be created on most boards

int pos = 0;    // variable to store the servo position

void setup() {
  myservo.attach(9);  // attaches the servo on pin 9 to the servo object
}

void loop() {
  for (pos = 0; pos <= 180; pos += 1) { // goes from 0 degrees to 180 degrees
    // in steps of 1 degree
    myservo.write(pos);              // tell servo to go to position in variable 'pos'
    delay(15);                       // waits 15ms for the servo to reach the position
  }
  for (pos = 180; pos >= 0; pos -= 1) { // goes from 180 degrees to 0 degrees
    myservo.write(pos);              // tell servo to go to position in variable 'pos'
